Large-Scale Electromagnetic Simulation of a Full Automobile Model Using the FDTD Method and Measurement 2004-01-0777
Parallel computational software employing the FDTD (Finite Difference Time Domain) method was developed and used in a large-scale electromagnetic simulation of a full automobile model. The results demonstrate that this method enables the characteristics of vehicle-installed antennas to be calculated. In addition, a comparison of the results of the simulation and actual measurements verify the viability of the simulation as a design tool.
