QuickWave

Co-processings & post-processings

QuickWave is very flexible in so called co-processings. The user can open arbitrary number of windows for display of field components, dissipated power, Poynting vector etc. (in various graphical display systems and at any simulation stage). The decisions about the number and type of the windows showing valued deliverable form of the instantaneous filed components do not need to be taken prior to launching the simulation.

The co-processings data are available (for viewing, storing, etc.)**at any simulation stage**.

automatic and manual scales

one and two dimensional displays

two dimensional displays available for each cells layer

Data

fields (E and H field components), Poynting vector and power dissipated distribution available at any simulation stage (time domain monitoring)

fields (E and H field components), Poynting vector and power dissipated distribution for real and imaginary grids, available for the periodic structures

SAR calculations

temperature and enthalpy distribution for microwave heating problems

effective media parameters distribution

watching field components along a specified line in space/versus time/along pre-defined contour

virtual measurements of attenuation and SWR

Time-Domain Reflectometry results (with virtual measurements of reflection coefficient and location of the discontinuity)

power dissipated and energy stored in electric and magnetic field, and the resultant Q-factor calculations (also for real and imaginary grids for periodic structures)

power dissipated and stored energy calculations for the entire lossy volume or in the specified objects

energy dissipated over the entire duration of a pulse of limited duration (power dissipated integration in time)

Here the tasks requiring calculation of the Fourier transformation of fields (S-parameters, radiation patterns or field distribution of a particular frequency extracted from pulse excitations) are included. In this case an apriori knowledge about the data to be accumulated during simulations is required (user chooses data that should be calculated before running the simulation).

All the post-processing data can be viewed, stored, etc.,**at any simulation stage**.
