Abstract: A mesh generation algorithm for the Method of Moments (MoM) is presented here. Mesh of a shape is a set of cells (e.g. triangles) approximating this shape, and meshes are used, among others, in electromagnetic analysis with the MoM. For arbitrary planar shapes, this algorithm (named CGSM) generates a mesh comprised of mixed triangular and rectangular cells. Th e shape(s) to be meshed, described with line segments and arcs, may have any number of holes. Moreover, CGSM can provide non-uniform (denser) mesh near the edges of each shape. In the paper, a brief step-by-step description of CGSM is given, and then two structures are simulated using meshes created by CGSM and commercial software IE3D™.
