    An original approach in microwave optimization, namely, a neural network procedure combined with the full-wave 3D electromagnetic simulator QuickWave-3D implemented a conformal FDTD method, is presented. The radial-basis-function network is trained by simulated frequency characteristics of S-parameters and geometric data of the corresponding system. High accuracy and computational efficiency of the procedure is illustrated for a waveguide bend, waveguide T-junction with a post, and a slotted waveguide as a radiating element.
