Inside Story - Article - ANSYS Advantage - V11 I3

The scores of antennas extending from the surface of today’s jet airliners create drag that adds to fuel consumption. Brazilian National Institute of Telecommunications (Inatel) and Embraer engineers have been developing new ways of installing antennas that could save fuel. With ANSYS simulations, engineers can predict the performance of proposed installations without the time and expense of building prototypes.
