ERROR 116: The ratio of the segment radius to length is too large

Recommended Posts

Thank you very much for your response. In my case, i am simulating helix coil and circular coil. I can not use edge port in this configuration. It is working fine with diameter of 2.5 cm. But when i change radius of transmitter coil to 2 cm. It  gives me the following error " Error 16498: The following segments' radii are too large".

Hi @SUG,


FEKO assumes wires to be thin. This means that a segment (= mesh part of a wire) should not be shorter than 5 times the radius of the wire. Else using cylinders is recommended. Looking at your screenshot, you should clearly model the coil as a cylinder. The attached model shows the idea.
