Mthode des diffrences finies dans le domaine temporel/ Finite Difference Time Domain Method Halim Boutayeb Rsum:

La mthode des diffrences finies dans le domaine temporel est une mthode numrique base sur la discrtisation en temps et en espace des quations de Maxwell. Elle est trs utilise pour traiter des problmes de rayonnement lectromagntique (compatibilit lectromagntique, dtection de mines, antennes), pour lanalyse de linteraction des ondes avec des tissus humains, pour le dveloppement de composants micro-ondes, et aussi en optique. Les principaux avantages de cette mthode rsident dans sa formulation relativement simple, la robustesse de l'algorithme quelle utilise et dans la possibilit d'effectuer des tudes sur une large bande de frquence, les calculs s'effectuant directement dans le domaine temporel. Lobjectif de ce cours est de se familiariser avec les fondements de la mthode : diffrences finies, schma de Yee, dispersion numrique, stabilit, conditions aux frontires, PML, formalisme des fils minces, calcul du champ lointain. la fin de lexpos, un mini projet sera donn, permettant a chacun dcrire un code DFDT, pour un problme simple. Abstract: The Finite Difference Time Domain Method is a numerical method based on the discretization of Maxwell equations in time and space domains. This method is often used for electromagnetic radiation problems (electromagnetic compatibility, mines detection, antennas), for analyzing the electromagnetic absorption in human tissues, for designing microwave circuits, and also in optics. The principal advantages of this method are the robustness of the algorithm, a simple concept, and the possibility to obtain frequency domain results in a wideband by using the time domain results. The objective of this course is to get familiarized with the fundamentals of the method: finite difference, Yee algorithm, numerical dispersion, stability, boundaries conditions, PML, thin wire formalism, far field calculation. At the end of the presentation, a mini-project will be given, where an FDTD code will be developed for a simple problem. Halim Boutayeb received the "Diplme dIngnieur" (B.Sc. degree) in signal processing and telecommunication from the Institut de Formation Suprieure en Informatique et Communication (IFSIC) Rennes, France, in 2000 and the French D.E.A. (M.Sc. degree) and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Rennes, France, in June 2000 and December 2003, respectively. From March 2004 to December 2006, he was with INRS-EMT, Montreal, QC, Canada. Since January 2007, he has been a Researcher at cole Polytechnique de Montreal, QC, Canada. He has been also a member and the executive coordinator of the research center CREER which groups 34 professors/researchers of Quebec in electromagnetism and RF technologies. His main fields of interest are electromagnetic bandgap structures, FDTD method, antennas, microwaves circuits, radars, local positioning systems, and phased-arrays. He has authored or coauthored more than 50 journal and conference papers and one patent. Dr. Boutayeb was a recipient of the NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship (20042006). He has served as a Technical Program Committee member of IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC) 2006. He is a corecipient of the Best Paper Award at the JINA international conference in November 2004.
