FEM-BEM Coupling of a Microstrip Patch Antenna
Application ID: 102981
This tutorial model analysis of a microstrip patch antenna shows how to couple the finite element method (FEM) to the boundary element method (BEM) for evaluating the field outside the FEM computational domain. The model computes the S-parameter, near-field distribution, and far-field radiation pattern through the FEM and the electric fields outside a given air domain sphere with the BEM.
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. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
