Abstract:-
Finite element method is used for the electric field computation of a dipole antenna at the 2400 MHz frequency in the context of Dirichlet and absorbing boundary conditions. It shows that the electric field pattern, both in bi-dimensional and polar plots, has an omnidirectional property for the dipole antenna. Our results are compared against the method of moments with a good agreement.
