Complex Radome Electromagnetics Simulation in Minutes

A radome is a structural enclosure that protects antennas and electronics from harsh weather and environmental factors without degrading electromagnetic signals to the radar. It is designed to have minimal impact on the electrical performance of the antenna and to withstand structural and wind loading performance requirements. They are used across multiple industries, including aerospace, defense, electronics, and telecommunications. Radomes, especially those containing multiple layers and curved FSS elements, are complex and the modeling and simulation of these systems can commonly take days and even weeks to complete. Altair’s streamlined radome simulation solution reduces this time to minutes. This webinar will overview Altair’s radome simulation solution and its application to design a radome system. Who Should Attend? This webinar has been designed to address the needs and challenges of engineering managers, EMC engineers, antenna engineers and designers, RF engineers, and Radio site engineers from military contractors (OEMs and their suppliers), defense governmental organizations (including navy, air force, army), and aerospace companies (OEMs and their suppliers).

New Method for Evaluation of Adhesive Joint Failure Under Cyclic Loads

In vehicle bodies, bonding has become established for joining a wide variety of materials. However, to date there is no generally applicable method for analyzing the adhesive joint fatigue. In tests performed, a pronounced cohesive crack propagation phase was observed in epoxy layers with high local stress, resulting in high fatigue life differences between crack initiation and total failure. In order, to take this into account, the failure criterion was extended from initiation of technical crack to a local cracked zone. A new method for determining the utilization degree of cracked zones was developed and calibrated based on experimental S/N curves. Recently, the stand-alone application ClaRP has enabled automatic damage assessment and thus the analysis of adhesive layers in complex finite element models.

Lightweighting With Laminate Composites: Vibro-Acoustic Design Using AlphaCell

Laminate composites are often the answer to ever increasing lightweighting demands. While significant advances were made regarding mechanical strength, there remain a number of challenges regarding their vibro-acoustic properties. Composites are indeed lighter and stiffer, which as a result, tends to decrease their sound insulation properties at critical audible frequencies. One thus needs a thorough design of the structure to avoid acoustic comfort failure. During this webinar, a unique approach to predict the vibro-acoustic response of laminate composites will be presented. Supported by short computational times and high fidelity predictions, this new feature of AlphaCell enables to optimize the design at an early stage of the project. In addition to accurate predictions, this model further enables to reduce the computational cost in FE analyzes by providing material cards with condensed properties.

Knowledge Studio Spotlight Series - Fraud Detection and Prevention: A Data-Driven Approach

Fraud impacts everyone—from individual consumers to large corporations. Traditional rules-based systems may have been effective in the past in identifying fraud, but they become ineffective and stale as fraudsters learn how to bypass those rules. It becomes even more challenging due to the large volumes of data that need to be processed and examined to detect fraud, in addition to the constantly changing tactics for committing fraud – those activities are usually hidden in large volumes of data. Recently developed machine learning techniques are increasingly effective in detecting fraud with the advances in data systems (e.g. big data, streaming data) and computational systems (e.g. high-performance computing, GPU). As a result, it is possible to identify fraudulent patterns of behavior in data that is constantly being captured from day-to-day activities. In addition, it is feasible to address the challenges associated with fraudsters changing their tactics.

Large Platform Co-site Interference Mitigation

Platforms like frigates, fighter aircraft and armored vehicles tend to contain many transmitting and receiving antennas for a variety of electronic systems such as communication systems (including SATCOM), radar, positioning systems, and more. Even though these systems may operate on different frequencies, due to their proximity they may interfere. To analyze for co-site interference using electromagnetics simulation solutions requires

(a) accurate determination of the coupling between antennas over a broad frequency range, even if platforms are complicated, and no direct line of sight may exist,

(b) evaluation of the impact of non-linear electronic effects including harmonics, intermodulation, IF breakthrough, image frequency, Tx and Rx spectra, and receiver blocking.

Altair’s full system solution for analysis of co-site interference will be presented in this webinar, along with a practical example where an interference problem is identified and eliminated.
