CST Previews New Tool for Multi-Physics Simulation
Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces the introduction of CST MPHYSICS STUDIO™, a new product in CST STUDIO SUITE™ 2010, at EuMW, booth # 527.
In many branches of microwaves and RF engineering, required analysis is not confined to the electromagnetic problem, particularly when dealing with high power applications. Both the temperature rise and resulting stress have to be considered in the design process since these may have major implications for the device’s performance.
The introduction of CST MPHYSICS STUDIO™ facilitates an integrated workflow in which the electromagnetic simulation calculated by CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® is just the starting point. The dielectric or conductive losses can be used for thermal analysis, which in turn is one of the possible sources of mechanical stress. The resulting deformation can then be subjected to sensitivity analysis. CST MPHYSICS STUDIO is a part of CST STUDIO SUITE. It features a mechanical stress solver as well as a stationary and a transient thermal solver, both of which are capable of considering the bioheat equation. Through the seamless integration in CST’s design environment, multi-physics simulation has become straightforward.
“Many of our customers have requested a tool that will help them estimate the impact heating has on the performance of their products,” stated Dr. Peter Thoma, Managing Director, R&D, CST. “Typically geometry and results have to be exchanged between tools from different vendors. CST MPHYSICS STUDIO is streamlined to meet the requirements of EM design engineers within their design flow.”
CST MPHYSICS STUDIO will be available with CST STUDIO SUITE 2010, which is due for release in January 2010.
