Interaction between the different shape FSS unit cell

      Hi Ansys Innovation Space Community,

      I am trying to simulate the double-layered FSS from two different-looking unit cells.

      However, I cannot find a clue to set the unit cell and Floquet port.

      For instance, if I want to simulate between the cross-unit cell and hexagon unit cell,

      How should I set the air box and the port?

      Since I didn't know how to run it, I just made a big square array and I saw the error messages like below.

          [warning] In Master_To_Slave map, body Polygon2 has multiple contacts. Its Primary contact is body Polygon2. Its secondary contact is body {Box1} (6:28:51 PM  Jan 16, 2023)

      Is there anyone who knows how to simulate the interaction between the two different FSS?

      Hi,

      I could not understand fully what your requirement is. Please provide more details to help us serve you better.

      Following are some preliminary suggestions that can help you -

      1. How are the "cross" and "hexagon" portions designed in the tool?
      2. Are the "cross" and "hexagons" made of conductor material?
      3. Is there any dielectric material placed between these two FSS structures?
      4. I see that there is some offset between the centers of these two structures. Is that why you were not able to define the unit cell?

      Best regards,
      Praneeth.

        Really appreciate your response.

        1. I don't understand the question with the first one. I don't know this could be an answer, I usually follow the youtube video below
        2. Those are Perfect E sheets.
        3. Just an air gap. I just want to see what will happen if I put two different FSS pattern put together
        4. when it comes to simulating in a unit cell, I don't know how to make an air box and assign a Floquet port.

          I will attach a link to the youtube video that I used as a reference.
        ">

        The problem that I have is when there are two different shapes of FSS and if I want to put it together (or overlap with a gap), How I should simulate it through the HFSS.
