Analysis of Arbitrary 3D Structures
Structures of any shape are efficiently analyzed in WIPL-D Pro (which is also included in WIPL-D Microwave). No matter how complex the structure may be, it is always decomposable to a set of basic building elements, wires and plates. But the user is not expected to manually define all the basic elements. Custom objects and manipulations that are performed on all the entities and groups of entities ease the modeling process and make it more efficient.
Since it is a full 3D modeler and solver, WIPL-D Pro will equally perform when faced with a planar or a 3D problem. There are no restrictions regarding the symmetry of the observed structure along the coordinates. So, just think of a structure, model it and check out how would your idea perform in reality.
Flexible geometrical modeling includes cylindrical and conical wires, bilinear quadrilateral metallic plates and lossy/lossless dielectric/magnetic surfaces, wire-to-plate junctions and protrusions.
Flexible current modeling is based on polynomial approximation in conjunction with the Galerkin method applied to surface integral equations, resulting in an extremely accurate and efficient method for the analysis of high frequency designs. WIPL-D Pro offers you a choice between the automatic determination of the order of current approximation and a manual specification.
Very large structures are automatically meshed in order to achieve the desirable level of accuracy.
Symmetry of the structure can be used to reduce the size of the linear system and speed up the analysis.
A composite structure is characterized by electric currents over metallic surfaces and equivalent electric and magnetic currents over dielectric surfaces, enabling the treatment of dielectrics of high permittivity or great losses.
Concentrated and distributed loadings can be added to the metallic structure, thus simulating lumped elements, losses due to the skin effect, surface roughness, etc.
