ANSYS HFSS SBR+ Antenna Placement


The HFSS SBR+ Antenna Placement course introduces users to the shooting and bouncing ray (SBR+) capability in HFSS and applications in antenna placement applications, including antenna integration onto electrically large platforms and antenna performance in real world scenarios. There are multiple hands-on simulation workshops, including 3D components, platform integration and antenna location with hybrid simulation, Savant for antenna coupling analysis, and vehicle to home communications with Savant.


  • HFSS Antenna course or equivalent knowledge of HFSS with antenna applications
  • Knowledge of multiple different electromagnetic propagation models including wave and ray.
  • Knowledge of antenna design engineering principles including far-field antenna radiation patterns.

Target Audience: Antenna Designers

Teaching Method: Lecture notes and hands-on simulation workshop.
