  • Design and Validation of Compact Antenna Test Ranges using Computational EM | TICRA
    is a vital part of the design process However the large electrical size geometrical complexity and high accuracy requirements often mean that the available computer resources are not sufficient for running the simulation In the present paper we highlight some recent developments that allow for much larger faster and more accurate simulations than was possible just a few years ago and apply them to realistic ranges The conclusion is clear

  • Structural Design of the DTU-ESA MM-Wave Validation Standard Antenna | TICRA
    inter comparisons and validation of antenna test facilities is under development in cooperation between DTU and TICRA under a contract from the European Space Agency The antenna is designed to be extremely thermally and mechanically stable in the range of temperatures 20 5 C under arbitrary orientation in the gravity field The antenna has a characteristic length of approximately 500mm And in order to obtain very low measuring error the allowable deformations of the reflector and feeds are down to 2 5μm The antenna is modelled structurally using the commercial finite element package MSC Patran with MSC MARC as solver The solid parts of the antenna are meshed with 10 noded tetrahedral elements which have quadratic shape functions and the entire model has approximately 325 000 elements The individual solid part of the antenna is connected via a glued contact formulation in MSC MARC Because of the size and the complexity of the model a computer cluster is applied to solve the analyses This paper describes the structural solution to meet these extremely strict stability requirements and the structural analyses done in order to verify that they can be met The paper also discusses the challenges of integrating an aluminum
