GTD-PO 6.3

15.2. Example 2: Monostatic RCS of a ship

This case explains how to calculate the monostatic RCS of an imported geometry.

Step 1

Start newFASANT.

Start newFASANT window


Step 2

Select File and click on New

New File


Step 3

Select GTD-PO.

Method Type selection


Step 4

Select the geometry to import

Import geometry menu


Step 5

Click on Simulation -> Parameters to change the project parameters

 Simulation parameters window


Step 6

Click con RCS -> Parameters to set de RCS parameters of the project

rcs window

 RCS parameters window


Step 7

Click on Source -> Parameters to modify the source parameters for this project


Source parameters panel


Step 8

Introduce the observation information as follows:

Step 9

Before running this example, create the project mesh by doing click on Meshing -> Create Mesh


Meshing panel


 Meshing execution log


Step 10

Visualize the created mesh. To do this click on Meshing -> Visualize mesh.

Now you will be able to choose the generated mesh file.

Visualize generated mesh


Step 11

Now we are going to proceed to simulate the project. 

Click on Calculate -> Execute and choose the number of procesors to use for the simulation. Then click on the Execute button and wait until it ends.
