Eletric field lines application

  1. Mar 26, 2003 #1
    I'm looking for some software that will allow me look at equipotential electric field lines for various structures in two dimensions. Any thoughts?

    I remember I ran into a good looking utility when I was researching antenna design, but now I can't find it...

    You just want to see equipotentials for electrostatic situations in two dimensions?

    That's so easy! Perhaps you'd learn a lot more writing your own utility. It would be quick to write one in Java...

    the component that makes this a little more complicated is that I want to be able to introduce Faraday Cages and line charges, etc... not just point charges.

    That doesn't make it any more complicated -- all conductors are equipotentials, and line charges can be simulated as a finite set of point charges.

    that doesn't increase the likelyhood of me being able to write an applet
