There are many or some non-expert-system EMI tools. I know the famous
names from Ansoft, Apsim and so on.

I will introduce an electromagnetic simulator "ACCUFIELD".

ACCUFIELD has capabilities of calculation by not only the moment-method
but also distributed-element method, which can analyse both resonance of
solid (metal or dielectric) structures and emission from signal lines.
Added to these basic functions, it has an optional function of analysing

You can make models of 3D structures and/or signal lines on boards in
the internal GUI editor. It has automatic mesh'ing function and ...
Solaris only...navigation for modeling.
Since the databases are readable ASCII format, you can customize your
models by using text-editor.

For more information, visit;

It is priced from approx.$80K-, working on Solaris 2.4,2.5,2.6 and 7 for
SPARC, Windows 95/98/NT4/2000 for x86. It also works on AP3000,
Fujitsu's super-parallel Ultra-SPARC engine.

In general, I think it is very difficult to get "absolute value" of
emission/radiation forecast, which needs detailed and complexed model
and huge computation time, however, EDA tools will help you to get
"relative value" from what-if analysis with simple model and with
(rather) small amount of time.
