A finite-volume/finite-element method developped in CFD is applied to solve numerically the time-dependent 2D Maxwell system. We use a third-order accurate explicit scheme with triangular meshes. We are particularly concerned here with scattering problems for both homogeneous and non-homogeneous materials. Radar cross section calculations are presented and compared with exact or integral method solutions. A parallel version of the algorithm on the connection machine is presented and the… 

Comparison of Two Explicit Time Domain Unstructured Mesh Algorithms for Computational Electromagnetics

An explicit finite element time domain method and a co-volume approach, based upon a generalization of the well-known finite difference time domain scheme of Yee to unstructured meshes, are employed

A high order hybrid finite element method applied to the solution of electromagnetic wave scattering problems in the time domain

The development of a hybrid high order time domain finite element solution procedure for the simulation of two dimensional problems in computational electromagnetics is considered and an exact analytical solution is employed initially to validate the procedure and the numerical performance is then demonstrated for a number of more challenging examples.

A parallel implicit/explicit hybrid time domain method for computational electromagnetics

The numerical solution of Maxwell's curl equations in the time domain is achieved by combining an unstructured mesh finite element algorithm with a cartesian finite difference method, which ensures that computational efficiency is maintained if, for any reason, the generated unstructuring mesh contains elements of a size much smaller than that required for accurate wave propagation.
