Hi, I'm very new to ANSYS Software. 

For my personal research from school I decided to use ANSYS to do RCS simulation using FEM and now I'm looking into method in which to conduct micro doppler simulation of the CAD design I have. I am currently not sure whether if it's possible to conduct the micro doppler simulation using ANSYS. Anyone here have any idea to share? 

Thanks in advance, Tae.

Hi Tae.  Please can you post some images of what you're wanting to model?

Thanks for the reply !! 

I don't have the design yet but it will be a perfect sphere that's about 23 in radius. I will be designing the CAD file through solidworks and import solidwork file to the ANSYS but still not sure if it's possible to do micro doppler effect FEM simulation through ANSYS.

Sincerely, Tae.

The only reference to micro doppler that I can find looks to be related to radar?  

If this is the case it's possible, but very complicated and (unfortunately) we (ANSYS staff) cannot discuss applications at that level on a public forum.

Yes, it is related to radar. 

Would it be at least possible for me to know which ANSYS platform I will need to use? From my understanding since it's related to radar I will need to use ANSYS HFSS but is it possible to get both RCS and micro doppler simulation using ANSYS workbench? 

Sincerely, Tae

Probably HFSS, but it'll depend on which bit you're looking at. We'll need to wait for EBU (ANSYS) or someone in the community for this one: I'm a process engineer using CFD so this is way outside my field!

Through ANSYS workbench is it possible to do receive RCS results or in order to receive RCS results ANSYS HFSS, IE is mandatory?

What is RCS?

It's radar cross section.

Having spoken to the HFSS team in Europe: the answer is HFSS with the IE solver.  There is also an add on to HFSS, SBR+ which may be better but we'd need  a lot more information to figure that out: which would mean we couldn't answer the question..... 

 

That's all I can say as I don't actually know what IE and SBR+ are and the EBU team can't comment with any detail without breaking our rules so it's over to you, the community and documentation. 

Good luck!
