A Novel Domain Decomposition Finite Difference Time Domain Scheme Including Multiple Reflections

By Hany Abd-El-Raouf and Raj Mittra
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 4, 53-64, 2008

Abstract

In this paper, we present a new domain decomposition technique which considers the effect of multiple reflections between the subdomains. This method has the ability to simulate accurately large electromagnetic problems that are difficult to handle using the direct application of the FDTD method. The results for the test examples considered in this paper compare well with the direct FDTD solution, and serve to validate the proposed scheme.
