MOM 6.2.10

15.6. Example 6: Common simulation with a coaxial feed source

This case explains how to calculate far-field, radiation pattern, current density, charge density, near field and impedance of an open box with a coaxial feed simple blade insides the box.

 

Step 1: Create a new MOM Project.

Open 'New Fasant' and select 'File --> New' option.

Figure: New Project panel

 

Select 'MOM' option on the previous figure and start to configure the project.

 

Step 2: Create the geometry model. To obtain more information about geometries generation see section 4. Geometry Menu on GUI User-Guide.

Execute 'box' command writing it on the command line and sets the parameters as the next figure shows when command line ask for it.

 

Figure: Box parameters

 

Select box geometry on main panel and execute 'explode' command writing it on the command line. Then the box will be transformed into 6 surfaces.

Select the top surface and execute 'delete' command. Then the surface will be removed from the geometry.

 

Figure: Surface selection and 'delete' command

 

Select all remaining surfaces and execute 'group' command.

Step 3: Set Simulation Parameters

Select 'Simulation --> Parameters' option on the menu bar and the following panel appears. Set the parameters as the next figure shows and save it.

Step 4: Set the source parameters. To obtain more information about sources and antennas see Antennas User-Guide.

Select 'Source --> Primitive Antenna --> Coaxial Feed --> Blade --> Simple Blade' option and set the parameters as show the next figure. Then save the parameters and the antenna appears.

Step 6: Meshing the geometry model.

Select 'Meshing --> Parameters' to open the meshing configuration panel and then set the parameters as show the next figure. In order to obtain the shortest possible time for meshing, it is recommended to run the process of meshing with the number of physical processors available to the machine.

Step 7: Execute the simulation. In order to obtain the shortest possible time for calculating the results, it is recommended to run the process with the number of physical processors available to the machine.

Select 'Calculate --> Execute' option to open simulation parameters. Then select the number of processors as the next figure show.

 

Figure: Execute panel

 

Then click on 'Execute' button to starting the simulation. A panel appears to display execute process information.
