Ansys EMA3D Cable vs. Ansys EMA3D Charge for Aerospace & Defense Designs

The Ansys EMA3D Charge and Cable solvers are specific tools that provide complementary capabilities for modeling and simulation of hazardous electrical discharges. Learn the EMA3D Cable and EMA3D Charge applications and how each solver is used for Aerospace and Defense applications. Hear from a subject matter expert with decades of experience at a major contractor speak about the benefits of modeling for requirements development and validation of complex vehicles and electronics units. See examples of the tools being used for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) certification, simulating electromagnetic environmental effects (E3), and analyzing space environmental effects (SEE).

What you will learn

  • When and how to use EMA3D Cable and EMA3D Charge Software during the life cycle of your program
  • Plan for the effort required to use these simulation tools successfully
  • What to do differently to get the most from these tools

Who should attend

  • A&D design engineers
  • Existing users of EMA3D Cable and Charge solvers
