Abstract

The three-dimensional (3D) orthogonal vector basis functions for the time-domain finite element method (TDFEM) solution of vector wave equations were analyzed. The completeness and orthogonality properties of the proposed bases were analyzed and were used to examine the stability of the TDFEM. The accuracy and efficiency of the proposed 3D orthogonal vector bases were examined by comparison with the traditional zeroth- and first-order vector bases. An iterative solver with a diagonal preconditioner was used to solve the matrix in each time step for the calculation which used zeroth- or first-order vector bases.
