2023 R1: What’s New in EMA3D® Charge

New features released for EMA3D® Charge are making simulating charging and discharging phenomena easier than ever before. “We’ve really streamlined the end-to-end workflow that we’ve provided users in terms of setting up the simulation, running the simulation, and analyzing the results of this simulation,” EMA Product Manager Kevin-Druis Merenda said. EMA3D® Charge can be used […]

Using FDTD to Study the Effect of Current Flow and Induced Electrical and Magnetic Fields on Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic Box Structures

The commercial airline industry is evolving, and manufacturers are turning their heads toward composite materials to build aircraft. Specifically, carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) has been generating considerable interest because it possesses several advantages. CFRP is lightweight, can’t be bent or forced out of shape, and has a high chemical stability. These factors add up […]

Determine EMI Risk in Autonomous Vehicles Faster with EMA3D®- Ansys HFSS Datalink

You spot a classic red truck driving down the highway, it could bring back memories of the one that was always sitting in the driveway at Grandma and Grandpa’s. That truck may resemble the trucks of today but there is one major difference, newer model vehicles are built with more electrical components, including some self-driving […]

Celebrating Aviation History in the U.S.

Flying high in the sky, each day more than 45 thousand planes are crisscrossing more than 29 million miles of United States airspace. Flight might be commonplace now, but for hundreds of years the reality of taking to the sky was only a dream. November is National Aviation History Month, a time dedicated to exploring, […]

Buzzing Bees are Adding an Electric Charge to the Atmosphere

When heading to space, electric discharges can kill a mission in a matter of seconds. Charge buildup can come from several sources, including precipitation. That includes rain, snow, sleet and even dust. At EMA, we simulate internal and external charging as well as electrostatic discharge. According to new research, there may be another source of […]

Are you Protecting your Wind Turbine Blades Effectively?

What would you do if you watched one of your wind turbine blades go up in flames after being struck by lightning? Watch what happens when a wind turbine is struck by lightning here. The damage that a lightning strike can cause to a wind turbine can be detrimental if the proper testing isn’t performed […]

GNSS Receiver

A Measurement Based Approach to Avoid GNSS Interference

GNSS receivers play a critical role in commercial and military systems. They can be found in a myriad of devices and platforms including phones, watches, drones, tractors, survey equipment, automobiles, airplanes, satellites, missiles, and ships. When GNSS receivers fail, the impact ranges from nuisance scenarios such as an incorrect distance for your latest training run […]

Space Environment and Radiation Effects (SERE) Chamber


The space environment is dynamic, complex, and harsh. The primary cause of risk for components and spacecraft in this environment is due to the energetic charged particles emitted by the sun resulting in charging. If proper consideration is not taken, catastrophic effects can lead to component or even mission failure. Thus, it is important to […]
