ANSYS 19 introduces Radar Cross Section (RCS) calculations into the ANSYS Electronics Desktop integrated HFSS SBR+ solver. This capability is based on ANSYS’ industry- leading shooting-and-bouncing ray plus (SBR+) method to predict far-field radar signatures for 3-D target models. The powerful and accurate asymptotic methods of HFSS SBR+ allow our users to solve these computationally large simulations very quickly, and will be a great asset for design engineers working in military and aerospace applications, such as advanced detection systems and stealth technology. In addition, the continued integration of the SBR+ technology into the Electronics Desktop will enable comprehensive and accurate large-scale, near-field radar analysis for performing automotive radar simulation for ADAS and autonomous vehicle applications.
ANSYS HFSS and the Electronics Desktop are transformed with a new, intuitive ribbon-based interface. This new modern look and feel streamlines and directs the simulation process and enables users with little or no simulation experience to set up and solve high-frequency electromagnetic field simulations with ease.
Along with the new user interface, we’ve added significant solver and HPC capability to the ANSYS HFSS product for greater value-add for our users. HFSS now includes our finite element transient, or time-domain-based, high-frequency EM solver to go along with the existing frequency domain-based solvers for finite elements and Method of Moments (MoM). In one package, HFSS delivers both frequency and time-domain finite element solvers along with 2.5-D and 3-D MoM technology. And, to deliver more computational power to our users, HFSS also includes as standard four computational cores that will add to existing HPC products and provide further simulation acceleration. Finally, the technology available with the electronics high-performance computing products can now be enabled with the broader ANSYS HPC products. With all these ANSYS 19 enhancements, HFSS delivers the most comprehensive set of solvers and HPC technologies in a single package on the market. Users can now perform more comprehensive design exploration through simulation using the accurate and reliable gold standard technology of HFSS.
