Xwake is a user friendly Body of Revolution (BOR) Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) code for wake potential and impedance calculations of rotationally symmetric structures. Geometry boundaries are automatically meshed, or modeled, by a choice of either of two approximations, the traditional stepped edge modeling, or a contour modeling. Contouring means geometry boundaries described with curves and angles are not distorted to follow the rectangular grid; rather, the grid is adjusted to follow the contour of the geometry boundaries. It offers greater modeling accuracy for problems whose geometries are not well represented by stepped edge modeling. Xwake can model materials of of any linear media type. The code computes the time evolution of the electromagnetic field in the modeled structure. The output available to the user includes the plotting of the wake potential versus wake length and the wake impedance versus frequency.
