Abstract : A method is presented to plot the magnitude and direction of the current induced on the inside surface of a rectangular or circular waveguide. The method requires the geometry of each waveguide to be modeled using a triangular mesh and assumes that the surface current values are known only at the vertices. Since a simple mapping exists between a two-dimensional rectangular region and the surface of a rectangular or circular waveguide, the plotting algorithm is designed to process two-dimensional data and then perform a mapping to a three-dimensional surface.
