FINITE DIFFERENCE SOFTWARE FEATURING QUICK INTERACTIVE DATA ENTRY FOR ELECTROSTATICS DESIGN PROBLEMS.

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

Many of the available finite-element and finite-difference software packages have tedious data entry and problem-setup procedures. This is a considerable drawback to designers, who often need quick evaluations of complicated trial designs. A Fortran program, that provides rapid interactive problem setup is described. A two-dimensional finite-difference grid is used so that conductors and dielectrics can be entered by simple specification of their edges. The edges are specified by means of Boolean combinations of lines, circles, or other geometric primitives. The finite-difference grid does not match the boundaries precisely, but the author does not consider this usually a problem for preliminary design evaluation.
