Abstract:
The past two decades have been a period of phenomenal progress in EM modeling and optimization, along with dramatic changes in the computing environment, and the emergence of many new and exciting applications. EM modeling and optimization have become an essential part of microwave design. We are solving more complex problems with EM-driven design than ever before. At the same time, computers are becoming much faster and cheaper, and we can do large-scale computations that were only dreams previously. Multiphysics simulation has also become a reality and is entering the mainstream design arena. On the other hand, new design challenges continue to arise. Design requirements become more stringent. EM geometry becomes more complex. Frequency becomes higher. Increased sophistication in multi-disciplinary modeling and design with coupling effects such as electromagnetics, thermal, mechanical stress, fluid dynamics etc. are becoming increasingly important. Many practical examples are still too large, and too computationally prohibitive to be solved using today’s computational tools and technology. Large-scale EM/multiphysics simulation, coupled with increased design complexity such as statistical modeling and yield-driven design easily overwhelms the present computational capability. These challenges also present new opportunities for research and innovation. This panel’s distinguished experts from industry and universities will present their perspectives on these topics. The panel session will also provide an opportunity for the audience to share their experiences and opinions and contribute to a lively discussion.

17:30-18:10, August 12, 2015 (Wednesday)

Speaker:
Dr. Matt Commens (ANSYS)

Organizer:
David Vye (ANSYS) and Hao Hu (ANSYS)

Title:
Addressing Electrically Large Antennas with Hybrid Simulation Techniques

Abstract:
With recent improvements in the efficiency of integral equation solutions it is now possible to combine the integral equation procedure with the finite element method (FEM) in a hybrid Finite Element Boundary Integral approach (FEBI). In electromagnetics the FEM is a general purpose technique that solves for volumetric electric fields and can be used to accurately characterize microwave components, antennas and signal integrity issues. For antenna or scattering problems, the air region surrounding the model must be included and terminated with an absorbing boundary condition (ABC). The integral equation (IE) approach, which solves directly for currents on object surfaces is not as general as the FEM, but is often more efficient for large open problems since it does not require the surrounding air volume. In this workshop, the presenter will provide background on the IE solver technology currently available in ANSYS HFSS and examine how by combining the two approaches in a FEBI technique HFSS users can accurately and efficiently simulate very complex, large open problems.
