Hybrid Finite Difference/Finite Volume Method for 3-D Conducting Media Problems
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 24, 85-95, 2012
Abstract
A hybrid time-domain method combing finite-difference and cell-centered finite-volume method is presented in this paper. This method is applied to solve three dimensional electromagnetic problems which involve media having finite conductivity. The fractional-step technique (FST) for FVTD scheme is applied to solve these problems. Local time-step scheme is used to enhance the efficiency of this method. Numerical results are given and compared with a reliable numerical method, which is used to show the validation of this method.
