In the method of moments, triangular patches and the Rao-Wilton-Glisson (RWG) basis functions to arbitrary shaped homogeneous lossy dielectric objects are used. The single TEM coil is modeled for 9.4T (400MHz) system, then electromagnetic scattering problem by human phantom model is solved based on the method of moments technique solution of the combined field integral equations.
