ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The electric field integral equation's (EFIE) solution using the Rao-Wilton-Glisson (RWG) implementation of the method of moments (MoM) is a complicated process employed in finding the solution of electromagnetic fields numerically. Long and complicated programs must be developed for its custom application. This thesis develops a MoM solver to be used as a basis for custom applications. The solver is developed with custom logic applications to process mesh data, allowing for the solution of selected impedance matrix entries. It employs Gaussian quadrature for standard integration and Radial angular square route methods to deal with singularities. The solver and its toolkit are then employed to test the viability of Windowed macro-basis functions in a three dimensional context.
