BROWNE, D.R., POMEROY, S.C. and FLINT, J.A., 2011. A mobile virtual electromagnetics laboratory for iPhone. Presented at CEM 2011, Eighth International Conference on Computation in Electromagnetics, 11th-14th April 2011, Wroclaw, Poland.
Modern mobile devices have now advanced to a point
where they can execute computationally-intensive
mathematical problems. The Transmission Line Matrix
Modelling method (TLM) is a time-domain method
allowing the computation of two and three dimensional
electromagnetic fields and structures. TLM is able to
model complex scenarios whilst utilising a
computationally simple method to model structures in
discrete spatial units. This paper presents an iPhone
Application (App) containing a TLM solver. The
simulation output is presented on the screen as the
simulation progresses. The performance of the iPhone
is sufficient to visualise full-field simulations and to
provide an interactive interface for the user.
