At radar frequencies, 1GHz and above, asymptotic methods are usually preferred to calculate the radar cross section (RCS) of targets like aircraft, since the main parts of the target are more than an order of magnitude larger than the wavelength. The challenge is how to combine these methods to compute the RCS. In this white paper the two-step method that obtains accurate results in limited time is detailed.
Bundles of electrical cables in vehicles, aircraft, ships and buildings pose electromagnetic compatibility and interference challenges to the electrical design engineer. Due to their lengths, they are more likely to radiate or pick up irradiation than many other electrical components and systems. This white paper will discuss how these challenges can be met with the aid of electromagnetic simulation.
Altair announced that Daniel Ung, a Masters student at Curtin University in Perth, Australia, has won the 2016 FEKO Student Competition, an annual international contest organized in support of engineering education and academic excellence.
The Altair Partner Alliance(APA) added systems engineering software from XLDyn, LLC to its lineup of software partnerships. The software is made up of two modules, XLSE and XL1D, which work together to automate the creation of system models and perform one dimensional (1D) multi-physics simulations.
Altair has acquired AWE Communications GmbH (AWE) based in Gärtringen, Germany. AWE was founded in 1998 as a spin-off from the University of Stuttgart and the main focus has been the development of the WinProp Software Suite for wave propagation and radio network planning.
Altair invites engineering students from across the globe to participate in the 14th annual FEKO Student Competition. The competition is open to all students who work on a supervised project in electromagnetic engineering and make use of FEKO, Altair's HyperWorks solution for electromagnetic simulation.
