Electromagnetic Scattering by Aircraft


The proposed project makes use of grid technologies through networking of parallel computer resources, and transmission and visualisation of data across the network. The work to-date, which forms the groundwork for the proposed project, has consisted of three main parts: Theoretical approximations to allow tractable computation, reducing the high computational cost ; implementation and parallelisation of the code; and validation of the code in special cases. Cambridge and BAE have been collaborating successfully to produce a portable version of the code. An illustration of the computational difficulty faced in simulating RCS for an aircraft is that for an engine duct as described above the Cambridge code runs in around four hours; the best codes available previously to BAE Sowerby required thousands of hours for a similar configuration.
