The propagation of electromagnetic waves in the foam core sandwich structures is highly affected by anisotropic permittivity and loss tangent of composite skins. Even though many investigations were focused on the propagation of electromagnetic waves in the composite materials in last several decades, little investigations were carried out to understand adequately the propagation of the electromagnetic waves in the foam core sandwich structures. In this study, the transmittance of the arbitrary linearly polarized incident TEM waves through the solid composite laminate with various stacking sequences and foam core sandwich structures with composite skins was calculated as functions of fiber orientation of composites and incident angle of the wave by the analytical model.
