Greetings: There is so much good stuff on RF Cafe that there is no way to list or
link to all of it here. Please use the Search box or the Site
Map to find what you want - there is a good chance I have it. Thanks!
Calculated values do not change until the "Calculate" button is clicked.
This standard equation is used to
compute the skin depth. An explanation can be found here.
Since data sources for materials properties typically present permeability in term of relative permeability (μr),
that is what is used for input in the calculator.
Most typical materials used for signal and power carrying
cables - e.g., copper, aluminum - have a relative permeability of 1. Materials with magnetic properties such as
steel and iron have relative permeabilities ranging from hundreds to hundreds of thousands.
