Abstract:

The objective of this Phase 2 effort was to develop computational electromagnetic CEM codes capable of modeling the radiation properties pattern, input impedance, efficiency, and bandwidth of conformal arrays printed on ferrite substrates or superstrates. The codes developed under this effort model inhomogeneous ferrites and dielectrics, non-planar surfaces, heterogeneous elements, complex feed mechanisms, and performance control devices such as shorting pins and lumped loads. The FE-BI codes brick and tetrahedral elements are combined by MRC via a graphical user interface GUI into a user friendly code capable of modeling conformal antennas with ferrite sub and superstrates recessed in planar surfaces.
