Abstract: A conformal first-order or Leontovic surface-impedance boundary condition (SIBC) for the modelling of fully three-dimensional (3-D) lossy curved surfaces in a Cartesian grid is presented for the frequency-domain finite-difference (FD) methods. The impedance boundary condition is applied to auxiliary tangential electric and magnetic field components defined at the curved surface. The auxiliary components are subsequently eliminated from the formulation resulting in a modification of the local permeability value at boundary cells, allowing the curved 3-D surface to be described in terms of Cartesian grid components. The proposed formulation can be applied to model skin-effect loss in time-harmonic driven problems. In addition, the impedance matrix can be used as a post-processor for the eigenmode solver to calculate the wall loss.
