CenterDriven Dipole
The dipole antenna is one of the simplest radiating structures. This was chosen as a canonical problem because it is relatively easy to model and analytical solutions are available. We plot the real and imaginary parts of the input impedance as a function of frequency. Codes based on the solution of surface integral equations (e.g. boundary element methods) should be able to solve this problem in a few seconds or less. Differentialequation based codes (e.g. FEM and FDTD methods) are less wellsuited to this type of problem, but should still be able to produce an accurate solution in a relatively short time.
