  • Wing airfoil geometric parameterization method for efficient aerodynamic design optimization

    A new geometric parameterization method, called here as TBM (thickness-based method), was presented and evaluated through different optimization cases and algorithms. This method is based on the well-known CST and it keeps all the baseline characteristics of the core method: geometrical flexibility, surface smoothness and small number of design parameters.

  • Enhancing deterministic synthesis of antenna arrays with stochastic methods

    The optimization of a CubeSat array antenna is explored in this work. The integration of CST Microwave Studio and modeFRONTIER is chosen for the proposed methodology. Specifically, the optimization of a geometrically uniform array is explored to improve efficiency.

  • Optimization of a small and lightweight antenna for handheld RFID reader

    This presentation demonstrates the successful coupling of the two softwares modeFRONTIER and CST for the enabling of multidisciplinary optimization of a waveguide and the antenna of a RFID portable reader. Overall, in the first case, modeFRONTIER helped meet the design targets, whereas in the second case it identified the best compromise between the most important requirements.

  • Multiobjective Electromagnetic Optimization of RF components

    Engineers sought to identify the best robust RF design solutions in an easier and faster way. Optimization procedures for 3 three RF components are presented: seven-element antenna array, isoflux antenna for LEO satellite down-handling link and 3D cavity filter.

  • Multi-objective optimization for antenna design

    Once the integration of the model in the optimization environment is done, all the optimization capabilities can be applied to improve the performance of the antenna. The optimization is a full batch process (no human intervention during the run phase), but can be constantly monitored from a “run-log” graphic console. Today multi-core PCs and clusters are able to carry out multi-objectives optimization of a complex model by a reasonable computational time.

  • Multiobjective Electromagnetic Optimization of RF components and systems

    In this presentation one of the challenges to be accomplished by the simulation tool is the ability to contribute more and more to the increasing wish of a shorter time to market of the RF product. To this aim Multi-objective optimization has been considered, combining the strength of CST MWS2, one of the most applied 3D electromagnetic simulation tool, with modeFRONTIER 3.

  • Design and Optimization of an Antenna using CST Microwave Studio and modeFRONTIER

    The work describes the design process of a small antenna located on a large platform. The antenna chosen as a solution is a combination of a Slot Antenna and Travelling Wave Antenna that was modeled and simulated using CST Microwave Studio for return loss and radiation pattern performance. Initial Simulation Results Matching over the full frequency range was nearly impossible due to dimension constraints and coupling from the platform.

  • FERMI@Elettra Undulator Frame Study

    The problem consisted of the optimization of a seven element antenna array to improve the radiating performance. The three objectives considered are the minimization of the return loss, together with the minimization of the cross polarization and the mutual coupling between the ports; simultaneously, the design should satisfy a complex constraint on the far-field pattern.

  • New Configurations of Low-Cost Dual-Polarized Printed Antennas for UWB Arrays

    The development of ultra-wide-band (UWB) antennas is recently providing new solutions for the design of innovative, versatile, and economical radar and communication systems. A novel class of structures is proposed and optimized for the purpose of producing ultra-wide-band radiating elements for large arrays, providing dual polarization, beam scanning, and compact and inexpensive realization based on suitable rhombic arrangements of dipoles printed on low-cost layered substrates
