A numerical model of a loaded reverberation chamber is used to study the effectiveness of 3-D position stirring and frequency stirring. The numerical model is based on thin wires, the moment method, and a cavity Green's function. The average power transfer level between two dipole antennas is compared to the average power transfer level between a dipole antenna and a loop antenna. The two transmission levels should ideally be the same, as both the dipole and the loop are treated as being lossless and impedance matched. The standard deviation of the level differences is a measure of the accuracy of the chamber, and this is used to estimate the stirring effectiveness. It is shown that frequency stirring must be done over a larger bandwidth than the average mode bandwidth to be effective. The 3-D position stirring is also shown to be much more efficient than expected.
