This paper proposes a novel effective method for open boundary problems by using the finite-element method (FEM) with a new formulation of the infinite edge element. We developed the formulation of the infinite element by adopting the characteristic of conventional edge elements, resulting in a sparse and symmetric matrix. This proposed technique with the infinite edge element has the advantage of drastically reducing the computational burden with keeping the analyses' accuracy. Some numerical examples which demonstrate the validity of the proposed method are presented.
