Selecting suitable material is an important issue in applied engineering. In this paper, an algorithm for optimum dielectric material identification is developed. Its scope covers general and specific requirements for the marine environment, using the parameters of influence to test whether the chosen material is suitable for use in the range of the parameters. The design of a parameter’s range is determined by the designer, and should be suited to the exact field of the specific application. The proposed algorithm is also location/application-dependent. It provides a framework for further development of self-turning devices, correcting itself by calculating the influence of environmental conditions.
