GTD-PO 6.2.11

15.1. Example 1: Monostatic RCS of a sphere and a box

In this example, the Monostatic RCS of a box and a sphere is calculated.

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

Click on Geometry→Solid→Sphere, which requires the center and the radius, as shown in the next Figure.

In this example the user enters the following values into the command line:

  • Center: 0 0 0
  • Radius: 1.0

Create sphere command

 

Step 5

Click on Geometry → Solid → Box, which requires the first corner of the base, width, depth, and height as shown in the next Figure.

In this example the user enters the following values into the command line:

  • First corner base:2.5 -0.5 -0.5
  • Width: 1.0
  • Depth: 1.0
  • Height: 1.0

 

 

Step 6

 Click on Simulation → Parameters.

 

Step7

On the top left side of the newFASANT window, the user can enter the desired parameters for this simulation, as shown in next Figure.

Select 1 bounce (simple reflection) and a frequency of3.0 GHz and left-click the Save button.

Simulation Parameters panel

 

Step8

Select RCS → Parameters.

RCS menu

 

Step9

This command appears at the top left side of the newFASANT window as shown in the next Figure.

Select Monostatic RCS only.

Step10

Select Source→ Parameters.

Source menu

 

Step 11

Introduce the source position (r, theta, and phi), as shown in the next Figure and left-click on the Save button.

Source panel

 

Step 12

In the Output tab, introduce the observation information: sweep on theta with 181 samples.

Step 13

Before running the case, select Meshing → Create Mesh.

Meshing menu

 

Step 14

Select 1 processor and define the curvature mesh option with a distance error of 0.01 and surface error of 0.08 and left-click on Mesh.

Meshing panel

 

Left-clicking on Mesh launches the meshing engine as shown in the next Figure:

 

Step 15

To obtain information about the mesh, select Meshing →Visualize Existing Mesh.
