An integral equation approach with a new solution procedure using moment method (MoM) is applied for the computation of coupled currents on the surface of a printed dipole antenna and inside its high-permittivity three-dimensional dielectric substrate. The main purpose of this study is to validate the accuracy and reliability of the previously proposed MoM procedure by authors for the solution of a coupled volume-surface integral equations system. In continuation of the recent works of authors, a mixed-domain MoM expansion using Legendre polynomial basis function and cubic geometric modeling are adopted to solve the tensor-volume integral equation. In mixed-domain MoM, a combination of entire-domain and sub-domain basis functions, including three-dimensional Legnedre polynomial basis functions with different degrees is utilized for field expansion inside dielectric substrate. In addition, the conventional Rao-Wilton-Glisson (RWG) basis function is employed for electric current expansion over the printed structure. The accuracy of the proposed approach is verified through a comparison with the MoM solutions based on the spectral domain Green's function for infinitely large substrate and the results of FDTD method.
