In this work we propose a novel single-run simulation method for RF coil design spanning enough of the design space to provide a clear intuition on optimal coil design, offer a benchmark SNR, and predict coil losses and coupling. It is based on the combination of conductors and sources to emulate coil arrays in a post-processing step. We demonstrated our method's potential for the optimization of an RF coil array for imaging of the rat limb at 7T. We validated our method using electromagnetic (EM) field simulations.
