Hello. To deal with Em simulation, there are questions over the substrate, as did not have to even deal with this analysis. Here I have a layout (FR4, Rogers, does not matter) with counted on microstrip filter or, for example amplifier SMD components. How to specify when the markup layers, which is what? If I have a simple sheet FR4 (as shown).

Here the upper metallization layer - a strip plane or slot?
The picture shows the region 1 - a sheet, and in theory, this is the conductive layer (divorced topology).
Also on riseyrt contains 2 area - a piece of iron, solder and components that are worth over a layer of metallization - intrude into substrate.
But the manual says that if there is a sheet, then the momentum and so do not consider the loss of the conductor. This raises the question, and whether I identify? Loss-in metallization layer may also not be disregarded
