Abstract:

The Numerical Electromagnetics Code NEC-2 is a computer code for analyzing the electromagnetic response of an arbitrary structure consisting of wires and surfaces in free space or over a ground plane. The is accomplished by the numerical solution of integral equations for induced currents. The solution includes Numerical Greens Function for partitioned-matrix solution and a treatment for lossy grounds that is accurate for antennas very close to the ground surface. The excitation may be an incident plane wave or a voltage sour wire, while the output may include current and charge density, electric or magnetic field in the vicinity of structure, and radiated fields. Other options compute the maximum coupling between antennas and facilitate Numerical Electromagnetics Code NEC-2 Numerical analysis Antenna response Electromagnetic radiation. structure input. Hence the code may be used for antenna analysis, EMP, or scattering studies. Part 1 of the document includes the equations on which the code is based and a discussion of the approximations and numerical methods used in the numerical solution. Some comparisons to demonstrate the range of accuracy of approximations are also included. Details of the coding and a Users Guide are provided as parts 11 and 111, respectively.
