Antenna Design With HFSS
Ansys 3D High-Frequency Simulation Software (HFSS) is a widely used electromagnetic simulation software to model antennas, antenna arrays, and other electromagnetic and radio frequency components. It uses finite element methods (FEM) as the solver. In these worksheets, you will find step-by-step guidance on modeling different types of antennas, how to adjust the various parameters such as the radiation space, conductive and non-conductive boundaries, and the analysis set-up.
