Abstract : Advanced composite materials are used extensively for commercial and military aircraft applications. This paper reviews numerous approaches and theories used for evaluating electromagnetic transmission through a variety of composite materials classes. The types of composite materials discussed are: (1) graphite/epoxy composites; (2) chiral composites; (3) omega particulate composites; (4) quasioptic composites; and 50 dielectric composites. Due to the availability of open literature references, the primary focus is constrained of the first two classes (graphite/epoxy and chiral composites). Topics discussed include AC circuit simulation programs, phase-correction modeling, and wave propagation theory.
