Creating the Model

Create the model in CADFEKO. Define any ports and sources required for the model. Specify the operating frequency or frequency range for the model.

  1. Use the model considered in Dipole in Front of a Plate with MoM and rename the file.
  2. Remove the symmetry around the 2 principal planes.
    Note: It is faster to simulate without symmetry when there is only a few mesh elements in the model. UTD plates are not meshed and a single mesh element is created.
  3. Set the solver method for the rectangular plate to use UTD.
    Tip: Open the Face properties dialog and click the Solution tab. From the Solve with special solution method list, select Uniform theory of diffraction (UTD).
