Modeling of Dipole Antenna Array Using the Boundary Element Method

Application ID: 118581

This example of a dipole antenna array demonstrates a cost-effective analysis using the Boundary Element Method (BEM). When dealing with a large array made of metallic radiators, the Finite Element Method (FEM) would necessitate greater computational resources. The simulation results depict the radiation patterns of a 12x1 array, consisting of metallic half-wave dipole antennas resonant at 1 GHz.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
