  1. Dear All, I am currently studying a bow-tie FSS from an paper (two dimanond-shapped conductive surfaces). I have tried to model it, especially from the tutorials about the Jerusalem Cross FSS and the patch antenna on finite substrate. I draw the corresponding polylines in the susbtrate (which is very thin = 0.127 mm ; region : custom dieletric Rogers 5880), then making them PEC. As it is an active surface, I added a load (1.8 Ohms) to a port between the two surfaces as illustrated in the screenshot (along with the model file). I managed to place the port in the middle on a wire, not touching the substrate, as issued in the forum (a post about feeding). For the simulation parameters : - PBC with repsect to the dimensions of the substrate - frequency range of [3 GHz - 7 GHz] with interpolation (the surface should resonate at near 5 GHz) - plane wave source - standard meshing, 0.01 mm for wire radius - CEM validation is OK. Asking for : Transmission/Reflection coefficients. Results : it takes a long time, and warns me about convergence issue ("WARNING 31096: ADAPTFEKO has reached minimum frequency stepping, results might not have converged"). Can you give me an advice to fix this problem ? If it is a bad modeling, or bad parameters used ? At least, can you validate this model ? Thank you. NB : I tried a version without the wire and the port, and whenever is the PBC spacing, it gives me grating lobes on the predicted resonning frequency range (Edit : even with PBC spacing > and >> lambda/2) NB: I am new to FEKO (~ 2 months). bowtie.cfx
  2. Dear staff, I am going to change my hard drive on the same laptop where are installed Feko+Winprop Student Edition, which I have to install again on the fresh new OS install. I think there won't be licensing issue, as my other components aren't changing. Am I correct ? Can I apply again the licence file as described in the installation guide ? Thank you, Sincerely
