Creating a FEM Line Port (Mesh)

Apply a FEM line port between two vertices in a tetrahedral mesh using the finite element method (FEM) solution method.

  1. On the Source/Load tab, in the Ports group, click the  FEM Line Port icon.

    Figure 1. The Create FEM Line Port dialog.
  2. Specify the port position using one of the following workflows:
    • Specify the vertices. Under Specify port, click using vertices.
    • The start point and end point of the FEM line port (in global coordinates). Under Specify port, click as points.
  3. [Optional] If the polarity of the port is to be reversed, select the Reverse polarity check box.
  4. In the Label field, add a unique label for the FEM line port.
  5. Click Create to create the line port and to close the dialog.
