2 Computational Challenges In Electromagnetics Prof. N. Balakrishnan Associate Director Indian Institute of Science Bangalore ATIP 1 st HPC in India Workshop 2009 Supercomputing 2009 Portland, OR, USA November 20 th, 2009

3 Traditional View of Computational Electromagnetics It is a technology for the defence It is more about waveguides, Circulators, cables, big antennas, radars The mathematics is tough and hence most of the people in microwaves are “hardcore” tinker/ mechanics You should be a plumber before you take up microwaves CEM are part of your life more than IT now

4 CEM becomes quantitative and adds to Grand Challenges in Computer Science Numerical Circuit Simulations- EMI inside a chip EM Modelling Multitude of simulations encompassing PDEs and IEs in Frequency Domain and Time Domain- Birth of Compuatational Electromagnetics- even before CFD and FEM And now the new buzz words- TeraHetrz CEM drives the craving for more compute power

5 Computational Techniques in EM Differential Equation FD FEM FDTD Asymptotic Techniques GO GTD UTD PO PTD SBR - Frequency domain - Time domain Integral Equation MOM MOT TLM T-Matrix FMM

20 Triangular Patch modelling of an aircraft with stores missile length = 3.2 m A/c with stores modeled as 63 surfaces triangular patches

21 Convolution Output Aircraft with missile: Te = 26 lm Aircraft with missile: Te = 30 lm Convolution output in late-time is minimum for the basic aircraft

22 Radar Cross Section Estimation And Control

23 Method of Moments (MOM) Hotspot Analysis

24 Discritisation Details for Representative Aircraft Element type: Triangle No. of Edges  (Unknowns) Criterion  4 cells /lambda On a 256 node Cluster  3 hrs Today we need to solve 15 million elements-

27 Surface Area of the Aircraft : sq. meters Wing Span: 10.8 meters Aircraft is along the x-axis: Front angle of the wing w.r.t x-axis : Rear angle of the wing w.r.t x-axis : For all the frequencies the aircraft body is discretized with lambda by 5

28 Complexity of Integral Eq. Techniques Surface Area of a typical Aircraft : 40 sq. meters Wing Span: 2.6 m (Approx) At 10 GHz the wave length is 3 cm Cell size at lambda/10 discretization is 0.04 Sq cm Number of cells = 10 Million At 3 GHz = 100,000 The matrix size at 10 GHz is 15M X 15M

48 LAMENT Before an aircraft design is complete, we may need around 1000’s of runs at various frequencies of large complex objects- coated, penetrable etc Rigorous Methods such as MoM are not known to scale to the 15 M variables problems in accuracy nor do we have machines that can be used for computing RCS at > 10 GHz frequencies The Asymptotic Techniques require extensive validation with real measurements For Homeland Security applications and sensing for materials – it is high frequency, layered though small in size Large levels of validation needed More importantly new architectures, new physics and newer techniques are needed
