Fast and Efficient Plane Wave Scattering Analysis of 2D Axisymmetric Models
Application ID: 106511
Electromagnetic scattering simulation for an object with continuous rotational symmetry can be performed in 2D axisymmetry instead of 3D to drastically reduce computational time and resources. This model shows how to simulate arbitrary plane wave incidence in 2D axisymmetric models by making use of the plane wave expansion in cylindrical coordinates. A more detailed description of this model can be found in our blog post "Electromagnetic Scattering in 2D Axisymmetric Models".
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license.
