Full Wave - Time

The Full Wave Solver takes into account all terms of Maxwell's equations. Due to this the wavelength can be smaller than the analyzed part dimensions and even very high frequencies are allowed. In the time Domain results are the electric and magnetic field for every time step.

Theory and Basics

Formulations

The basis equations:
(1)        rot h = j + δt d
(2)        rot e = -δt b
(3)        div b = 0

Constitutive relations:
(4)        b = µ h
(5)        d = ε e
(6)        j = σ e
