Join this Tech Talk to learn more about how a multidisciplinary design optimization workflow is proposed for designing airborne radomes.
Airborne radomes are critical for protecting the antenna from the environment, but the presence of radomes can affect the performance of the antenna systems. Therefore, it is essential to consider the radome while designing the antenna system. A well-designed radome is transparent to the electromagnetic waves within the operating frequency band of the antenna while satisfying the structural and aerodynamic requirements.
In this Tech Talk, we'll propose a multidisciplinary design optimization workflow for designing airborne radomes. The electromagnetic performance (simulated with SIMULIA CST Studio Suite) and the mechanical response of the radome (calculated with the 3DEXPERIENCE Structural Simulation App) are considered simultaneously while optimizing the material properties and geometrical parameters of the radome. The process orchestration is completed with the 3DEXPERIENCE Process Composer App and the aerodynamics analysis of the radome is done using the 3DEXPERIENCE coupled compressible, which is based on a 3D CFD simulation.
