—The finite-element time-domain (FETD) method based on the use of hanging variables to generate nested grids is used as an interface between the coarse and fine grids in the FDTD subgridding method. Since the formulation for treating hanging variables is based on a Galerkin-type intergrid boundary operator, the resulting FDTD subgridding algorithm is(More)
SUMMARY Numerical Stability of the Finite Element/Finite Difference Time Domain Hybrid algorithm is dependent on the hybridization mechanism adopted. A framework is developed to analyze the numerical stability of the hybrid time marching algorithm. First, the global iteration matrix representing the hybrid algorithm following different hybridization schemes(More)
3D Hybrid Finite Element-Finite Difference Time Domain (FE/FDTD) Method is developed and applied to the numerical modeling of antennas. The antenna geometry is modeled using tetrahedral finite element mesh. Pyramidal elements are introduced in the transition from unstructured tetrahedral elements to structured hexahedral elements. The finite element(More)
The stable hybrid Finite Element Time Domain-Finite Difference Time Domain (FETD-FDTD) method is extended by incorporating higher order hierarchical basis functions in the finite element region. The use of unstructured tetrahedral elements in the modeling of antenna structure enables the application of the hybrid method to accurately model geometrically(More)
