The Conformal Perfectly Matched Layer for Electrically Large Curvilinear Higher Order Finite Element Methods in Electromagnetics
Abstract: The implementation of open-region
boundary conditions in computational
electromagnetics for higher order
finite element methods presents a
unique set of challenges. One such
boundary condition is known as the
perfectly matched layer. In this
presentation, the generation of
perfectly matched layers for arbitrary
convex geometric hexahedral meshes
is discussed, with a formulation that
can be used to without differential
operator based absorbing boundary
conditions or coupling to boundary
integral equations.
