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 frequency domain Results are the electric and magnetic field due to excitation frequencies.

Theory and Basics
The basis equations:
(1) rot h = j + δt d
(2) rot e = -δt b
(3) div b = 0
(4) b = µ h
(5) d = ε e
(6) j = σ e
The following a-v-formulation is used for 3D
Magnetic vectorpotential a,
electric scalar potential v:
(7) b = rot a
(8) e = -δt a – grad v
Magnetodynamic weak a-v-formulation with full wave extension:
(9) (µ-1 rot a, rot a’ )Ω
+ (σ δt a, a’ ) Ωc
+ (σ grad v, a’ ) Ωc
+ (σ δt a, grad v’ ) Ωc
+ (σ grad v, v’ ) Ωc
+ (ε δ2t a, a’ ) Ω
+ (ε δt grad v, a’ ) Ω
+ (ε δ2t a, grad v’ ) Ω
+ (ε δt grad v, grad v’ ) Ω
+Silver-Müller radiaton condition at infinity (outgoing waves)
In case of wave guide solutions the solver uses the e-field formulation
(10) rot rot e + σ µ δt e + ε µ δ2t e = 0
The equation can be solved in the time or frequency domain.
Basic Example: Waveguide Loaded Cavity
The statement of this Team Workshop Problem 18 is to find the resonant frequency and other results of a square-shaped TE101 cavity coupled to a rectangular waveguide through a centered symmetrical inductive iris. All walls are perfectly conducting.
