View Radiation Map

The Radiation Map is a diagram that shows show the scattered field by each region in the specified directions. It is only available when the Radiation Map has been set as Simulation type in the Simulation Parameters section.

The signal, which may be set with different shapes, is generated by every antenna source available in the simulation, and the delay process may be computed in multiple far field observation directions.

After running a Radiation Map type simulation, click on Show Results - View Radiation Map to open the Radiation Map results, and the following panel is shown:

Figure 1. Radiation Map results

Within this window, the following options are available:

Step - Frequency
Select the results files to plot.
  • Step To specify the step results files when a parametric simulation has been run.
  • Frequency To specify the desired frequency results files when a frequency sweep has been run.
The radiation map may be represented in natural or dBs magnitudes.
  • dBs The radiation map is represented in logarithmic scale, given in dB-Volts per meter for electric field.
  • nat The radiation map is represented in natural scale, given in Volts per meter for electric field.
To specify the field component to plot and the observation direction to be considered:
  • Global/Directional Select the observation direction.
    • Global Only the Z axis direction is considered.
    • Directional The user may introduce the observation direction, defined by its spherical coordinates.
  • Phi/Phi/Total Select the field component of electric field to plot.
  • Theta Spherical theta angle to define the observation direction, in degrees. It is only enabled when de Directional mode is selected.
  • Phi Spherical phi angle to define the observation direction, in degrees. It is only enabled when de Directional mode is selected.
  • Load Confirm the selection to plot and update the diagram representation.
Filtering Range
Use this section to skip results that are outside the desired range.
  • Enable Filtering The filter only is applied when this check box is selected.
  • Max To specify the maximum value of the range.
  • Min To specify the minimum value of the range.
  • Filter Click on this button to update the results filtering.
Bottom Options
Below the radiation map diagram, the following options are included:
  • Options Disable this option to hide the left menu and visualize just the radiation map diagram.
  • Show Axis Enable this option to show the coordinate axes.
  • Show Geometry Enable this option to visualize the meshed geometry together the radiation map results.
  • Save as To export the represented results as an image file.
