Using HyperWorks to Generate Electrically Large Surface Meshes for Radar Cross Section or Antenna Placement Simulation

Radar Cross Section (RCS) and installed antenna placement are important parameters for aircraft designs. RCS is a measure of how detectable an object, such as an aircraft, is with radar. A large RCS indicates that an object, such as a jet aircraft, is easily detected.<br><br> SELEX Galileo used HyperWorks to generate arbitrarily large surface meshes, with defined electrical properties at the element level, for use with electromagnetic (EM) solvers to calculate either RCS of an aircraft or to determine where to place an antenna for optimum performance.<br><br> For this case study a fast-jet aircraft with approximately 100 million mesh elements was assessed for radar tracking and avoidance capabilities.

Using Analytical Approach with Finite Element Analysis for Coupling Magnetic and Thermal Analysis for Motors

Thermal analysis is a key factor when designing motors. We propose to link the studies of electromagnetic and thermal aspects in transient application with Finite Element Method (FEM) to represent the thermal state of motor with higher accuracy. As electromagnetic response time is different of thermal response time, an original method is used for extracting average values on one magnetic period of losses (Joule and iron losses), and to use them as input for the transient thermal analysis. So, the temperature in different parts of the motor is extracted, and brought back as input for the next electromagnetic computation.
