Abstract : MININEC is a method of moments computer program for the analysis of thin wire antenna problems. MININEC uses a Galerkin procedure to solve for the wire currents using an integral equation formulation that relates the electric field and the vector and scalar potentials. This approach results in a compact computer code suitable for use on a microcomputer. MININEC solves for the impedance and currents on arbitrarily oriented wires including configurations with multiple wire junctions. Optics include lumped impedance loading, near electric and near magnetic fields, and far field patterns for free space or perfectly conducting ground. MININEC is written in the BASIC language compatible with IBM PC DOS. Keywords: Method of moments; Computer programs; Galerkin procedure; Thin wire antennas; Numerical Electromagnetics Code.
