Wire antenna simulator



This is an interesting project which illustrates to students the power and utility of computational electromagnetics. This computer project was used as a springboard into discussing the modeling more complex structures like Yagi-Uda, Log periodic, loop and helical antennas at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. The descriptive document is in the form of the assignment given to the students in Sept. 2002. The source code was developed soon afterwards (and updated in 2004) and is free for use by anyone (as long as you acknowledge me, should you use it for any real work).
