Example 3

This example shows the dynamic monostatic RCS of two cubes.

Step 1

Create a new newFASANT project (using the MONCROS module) following the Step 1 to Step 3 in Example 1.

Step 2

Select Geometry → Parameters→ Define parameters and introduce the following parameters.

Figure 1. Define parameters panel

Step 3

Select Geometry → Solid→ Box to define the box parameters as follows:

Step 7

Select the RCS → Parameters option. Select Monostatic RCS and leave the default parameters. Press the Save button.

Step 8

Select Output → Observation directions. Leave the default observation directions (0.0 phi cut with theta angle varying between 0.0 and 180.0 using 181 samples).

Step 9

Before running the simulation, select the Meshing → Create Mesh option. Set 10 divisions on planar and curved surfaces, set Processors to 2 and the default number of bands per octave. Press the Mesh button.

Step 10

Select Calculate → Execute and set the number of desired processors to run the simulation. Press the Execute button to start the calculation.

Step 11

Select Show Results → Far Field→ View Cuts to visualize the far field values for the first step.
