This paper presents an airflow analysis and a shielding effectiveness (SE) analysis for a multilayered waveguide-below-cutoff array (WBCA) used to prevent electromagnetic penetration. The performance of the conventional unit square WBCA and the multilayered WBCA is compared. For the airflow analysis, the simulations are performed at the entrance and exit of the shielding structure when an airflow velocity of 1 m/s is injected at the inlet. The velocity loss and pressure difference of the multilayered WBCA are improved compared with the unit square WBCA. In terms of the shielding, the SE of the multilayered WBCA is compensated by increasing the number of overlapping layers. Furthermore, a new SE equation is derived by modifying that of the unit square WBCA.
