Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: Recently, the development of electronic and electric devices has caused an increase in the level of electromagnetic radiation; therefore, the demand for protection against this danger has increased. There are many ways how to ensure the protection of device against electromagnetic interference; however, this paper is devoted just one of the ways, the shielding. The paper is focused on calculation of shielding effectiveness of material used to protect facilities. The results of the experiment are made by using of CST simulation software. The findings presented in this study serve to find suitable shielding material.

KEYWORDS: Shielding effectiveness, CST Studio Suite, electromagnetic interference, electromagnetic susceptibility, attenuation, shielding material, electromagnetic simulation
