Five Steps to Easier Full Vehicle Simulation, including Cables

Vehicles are evolving to become more technologically advanced. Thousands of individual conductors organized into hundreds of individual cable harness segments now make up the guts of a vehicle. Evaluating vehicle performance becomes more difficult with all of the electromagnetic components (EM) because all critical cable conductors and harness elements must be included. Emissions, susceptibility, and […]

Rethinking Optics- How EMA is Supporting the Push for Metalenses

Most of us use a smartphone daily. It lets us connect with loved ones, send emails on the go, and take pictures wherever we are. Today’s smartphone cameras are producing quality images, closing the gap between phones and traditional cameras. Built-in cameras, more specifically the lens system, are one of the most expensive parts of […]

Four Steps to Quicker Aerospace E3 Results with Ansys EMC Plus

Inside the hull of an airplane, luggage hidden alongside the cables that keep the aircraft running. Every plane is susceptible to lightning which could fry the cables and render the plane useless. For this reason, aircraft must meet certain requirements before it can fly to make sure it is never in danger. EMA analysis includes […]

Visual look at the phases of a total solar eclipse.

Preparing for a Total Solar Eclipse

For the first time in seven years, North America is preparing for a total solar eclipse The total solar eclipse will cover portions of Mexico, the U.S., and Canada on April 8, 2024. A solar eclipse is when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, as seen in Figure 1. This blocks the face […]

Figure 2. EMC Plus's 3D field solution and cable solver are both solved on the same grid, in the same binary, with shared field, current, and impedance matrix information.

Electromagnetic Modeling of Full Vehicles and Their Cables, Unique Ansys EMC Plus Capabilities

Manufacturers of automobiles and aircraft require full digital representations of their vehicles that allow for accurate electromagnetic simulation. In the automotive industry, there is a desire to simulate and predict the full vehicle electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) performance of a vehicle using digital designs, which can be performed months or years before vehicles are available for […]
