Topics Discussed in Example

Before starting this example, check if the topics discussed in this example are relevant to the intended application and experience level.

The topics discussed in this example are:
    • Create the pin using a cylinder.
    • Create the waveguide sections using cuboids.
    • Define waveguide ports on each end of the waveguide.
    • Add a waveguide source.
    • Set the solution frequency.
    • Specify local (fine) meshing for the waveguide ports.
    • Specify symmetry to save computational resources.
    • Specify near fields on a plane inside the waveguide.
    • Mesh the model.
    • Run CEM validate to ensure the model is electromagnetically validated.
    • Run the Solver.
    • View the simulated input reflection coefficient on a graph.
    • View the instantaneous near field inside the waveguide.
    • View an animation of the near fields.
Note: Follow the example steps in the order it is presented as each step uses its predecessor as a starting point.
