EMA Webinar


Validation of Computational Electromagnetic Simulations to Support Aircraft Certification Projects for Direct and Indirect Effects of Lightning


Cody Weber


Computation Electromagnetic (CEM) simulations play an ever increasing role in the analysis and support for aircraft certification projects. CEM can be used to evaluate electromagnetic environmental effects as well as EMC/EMI system problems for design and certification support. This analysis can be used early in projects to investigate aircraft designs and assess the need for protections schemes but also to provide valuable results to aid in certification support. Both stages of simulation can provide significant program cost benefits by reducing program testing and developing a complete understanding of the EM response of a particular aircraft design. In this webinar, a senior EM scientist with more than a decade of CEM experience will highlight recent published efforts demonstrating the success of a large scale CEM simulation validation effort for direct and indirect effects of lightning on a commercial aircraft program with a composite fuel tank. The webinar will cover the validation comparisons of experiment and simulation results for a sample wingbox and a full aircraft. It will also cover some critical aspects of modeling and simulation required to achieve good correlations with experimental results.
