Abstract [en]

To investigate near-eld contributions for installed antennas, an in-house code iswritten to incorporate near-eld terms in Shooting and Bouncing Rays (SBR). SBRis a method where rays are launched toward an object and scatter using GeometricalOptics (GO). These rays induce currents on the object, from which the totalscattered eld can be found.To gauge the eect of near-eld terms, the in-house code can be set to excludenear-eld terms. Due to this characteristic, the method is named SBR Includingor Excluding Near-eld Terms (SIENT). The SIENT implementation is thoroughlydescribed. To make SIENT more exible, the code works with triangulated meshesof objects. Antennas are represented as near-eld sources, allowing complex antennasto be represented by simple surface currents. Further, some implementedoptimizations of SIENT are shown.To test the implemented method, SIENT is compared to a reference solution andcomparable commercial SBR solvers. It is shown that SIENT compares well to thecommercial options. Further, it is shown that the inclusion of near-eld terms actsas a small correction to the far-eld of the installed antenna.

Abstract [sv]

För att undersöka närfältsbidrag för installerade antenner, har en kod skrivits för‌att ta med närfältstermer i Shooting Bouncing Rays (SBR). SBR är en metod där strålar (”rays”) skjuts mot ett object och sprids via Geometrisk Optik (GO). Dessa strålar inducerar strömmar på objectet, från vilka det totala sprida fältet kan hittas. För att undersöka bidraget från närfältstermer, så kan koden exkludera dessa. På grund av denna karaktär, kallas koden SBR Including or Excluding Near-field Terms (SIENT). Implementationen av SIENT beskrivs utförligt. För att göra SIENT mer flexibel, arbetar SIENT med triangulerade nät av objekt. Antenner representeras av närfältskällor, vilket låter komplexa antenner representeras med enkla yt-strömmar.Implementerade optimeringar av SIENT visas också.För att testa den implementerade metoden, jämförs SIENT med en referenslösning och jämförbara kommerciella SBR-lösare. Det visas att SIENT överensstämmer bra med kommerciella alternativ. Det visas också att närfältstermer agerar som enmindre korrektion till fjärrfältet av den installerade antennen.
