Large Antenna Array Modelling – A Helix Antenna Case Study

Modeling very large antenna arrays can be computationally expensive, even with high frequency methods such as the MLFMM. Detailed steps are given to model an arbitrary size array of wire helices using the radiation pattern point source approximation in FEKO. … Read More

Modelling Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

An application note on the modelling of MRI in FEKO. Introduction EM simulation involves the numerical approximation of Maxwell’s equations to determine the EM behaviour of detectors and radiating structures. No physical assumptions are made regarding the fields when using … Read More
