As far as we are concerned, the implementation of the Finite Differences in the Time Domain (FDTD) method requires, for the solutions of several practical problems in electromagnetism, a long process time and a large amount of memory, what makes it impracticable in various cases, principally when the serial process is used. The current work deals with the concept of a Beowulf cluster and it aims to implement the FDTD method using parallel process for the study of antennas. The obtained system efficiency is then tested in the analysis of two antennas, i. e., a horn antenna and a monopole antenna, what is done by comparing the time spent in the parallel and serial processing.
