White Paper

The Ansys Charge Plus PiC Solver

All surfaces exposed to radiation – whether aircraft fuselages, satellite skins or solar panels – are subject to ionization effects thru the accumulation of charged particles on that surface. The resultant charged plasmas present critical hazards to these platforms as the sudden, nonlinear discharges of the plasmas can damage or destroy these surfaces or any underlying electronics. Through use of the Particle-in-Cell (PiC) solver, Ansys Charge Plus can capture each individual particle in such plasmas to permit the modeling and simulation needed to help system designers take preventative measures against phenomena such as lightning strikes and electrostatic discharge events.
