Abstract:
The method of moments (MoM) and the electric field integral equations (EFIEs), for both parallel and perpendicular polarization were applied to simulate scattering from 2D cavity structures. This code employed several matrix equation solvers, such as the LU decomposition, conjugate gradient (CG) method, bi-conjugate gradient (BCG) method, generalized conjugate residual (GCR) method, and generalized minimal residual (GMRES) method. The simulated results can be used for future reference and benchmarking. A comparison on the convergence behavior of the CG, BCG, GCR, and GMRES methods was made for the benchmark geometry, such as offset bend cavity, rectangular waveguide with hub, double-bend Sshaped cavity, etc. Some comments on the performance of the various iterative solvers will be highlighted.
