Computational results for specific problems with multiple Debye mechanisms are given in the case of discrete, uniform, log-normal, and log-Bi-Gaussian distributions.}, number={4}, journal={QUARTERLY OF APPLIED MATHEMATICS}, author={Banks, H.

We consider cell problems to calculate the effective parameters for a Debye dielectric medium in the case of a circular microstructure in two dimensions. We assume that the composite materials are quasi-static in nature, i.e., the wavelength of the electromagnetic field is much larger than the relevant dimensions of the microstructure.}, number={2-3}, journal={JOURNAL OF SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING}, author={Banks, H.

The foam block target contains knit lines which are modeled by modifying the speed of propagation, i.e., by altering the index of refraction. We describe our efforts to estimate the dielectric constant in the knit lines, as well as in the surrounding foam, by use of the classical Clausius–Mossotti equation, assuming only a change in density. We compare the numerical simulations accounting for knit lines to those in which knit lines are neglected, each in the context of modeling reflections of plane waves in foam with voids.}, number={9-10}, journal={MATHEMATICAL AND COMPUTER MODELLING}, author={Banks, H.
