Test 02: Total/scattered field source

Cubic volume with Liao absorbing boundary condition and Total/scattered field plane wave source. Outputs cross-sections to a Gwyddion file and point values in three different locations in scattered field region to text files. A perfect electric conductor (PEC) sphere is located in the center.

What can be tested:

  • performance of boundary conditions
  • use of TSF source (try different angles for incident wave)
  • PEC material conditions

Compare out.gwy with test02_out.gwy or tpntx with test02_pointx_log (and similarily for tpnty and tpntz) to check proper performance. Results should be directly comparable with test03 (SF source).
