Cody Weber is a Principal Scientist II and Co-Owner at Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc. (EMA) where he leads an E3 consulting and complex modeling team. The consulting team provides E3 certification support while the modeling team uses computational electromagnetics (CEM) to assess platform level aircraft EME interaction for threat evaluation or to set compliance levels. His team has developed complex models for civilian, space, military, and specialty engineering programs around the world simulating aircraft interaction, lightning, HIRF, EMP, and EMI environments.
Cody has used the consulting experience on aircraft certification programs along with his understanding of regulation guidance to enhance the workflow and adapt EMA3D® to solve real world aircraft problems. His team has developed modeling techniques to efficiently and accurately identify important aircraft EM features, including complex cable systems or structural seams, and capture these features in high fidelity FDTD models.
The quality of these techniques and models have been validated for aircraft of metallic and composite structures as well as other unique design applications. Several of these validation efforts have been presented at the International Conference on Lightning and Static Electricity (ICOLSE) that are available to share upon request.
