ABSTRACT New, simple and generalized PML formulations are presented for the truncation of the wave-equation Finite Difference Time Domain (WE-FDTD) computational grid. The formulations are based on the derivation of the wave equation in the PML region using the stretched coordinate PML approach. The method allows significant reductions in the computational time and the memory storage requirements as compared with the conventional PML formulations. Numerical tests are carried out in two dimensional domains to show the validity of the proposed formulations.

    ABSTRACT: An efficient implementation of the perfectly matched layer (PML) is presented for truncating lossy and lossless finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) computational domains. The implementation is based on the stretched coordinate PML formulations and on the derivation of the wave equation in the PML region. Significant savings in computational time and memory storage requirements are achieved. In addition, the FDTD implementation of the new formulations is simpler than the conventional PML formulations. Two dimensional numerical tests have been carried out to validate the proposed formulations. © 2002 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, two alternate formulations of the Yee algorithm, namely, the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) vector-wave algorithm and the FDTD scalar-wave algorithm are examined and compared to determine their relative merits and computational efficiency. By using the central-difference divergence relation the conventional Yee algorithm is rewritten as a hybrid Yee/FDTD scalar-wave algorithm. It is found that this can reduce the computation time for many 3-D open geometries, in particular planar structures, by approximately two times as well as reduce the computer-memory requirements by approximately one-third. Moreover, it is demonstrated both mathematically and verified by numerical simulation of a coplanar strip transmission line that this hybrid algorithm is entirely equivalent to the Yee algorithm. In addition, an alternate but mathematically equivalent reformulation of the Enquist-Majda absorbing boundary condition based on the normal field component (relative to the absorbing boundary wall) is given to increase the efficiency of the hybrid algorithm in the modeling of open region problems. Numerical results generated by the hybrid Yee/scalar-wave algorithm for the Vivaldi antenna are given and compared with published experimental work
