|Speaker: Dr. C. J. Reddy|
|Time: 1:00PM-1:50PM, Jul. 5 (Monday), 2010|
|Room: Room 4124, Mackenzie Engineering Building Carleton University, Ottawa|
Recent advances in computational electromagnetic tools made antenna design possible along with integration of antennas on various ground, sea and air platforms. Full wave techniques such as Method of Moments (MoM), Multilevel Fast Multipole Method (MLFMM) along with asymptotic techniques such as Physical Optics (PO), Geometrical Optics (GO) and Uniform Theory of Diffraction (UTD) will be reviewed. For many practical applications, sometimes it is necessary to study the electromagnetic behavior on a specific structure over a broad frequency band, and therefore it is important to have some benchmark data on computational resources needed for some commonly used numerical techniques. During this workshop, various antenna design applications will be examined. Also a full-size air, ground and sea platforms are considered and the frequency limit is pushed at different bands using several numerical techniques. A benchmark study of computational resources required by available computational tools for electrically large platforms will be presented.
Dr. Reddy is the President of EM Software & Systems (USA) Inc. At EMSS (USA), he is leading the marketing and support of commercial 3D electromagnetic software, FEKO in the US, Canada, Mexico and Central America. Dr. Reddy is also the President and Chief Technical Officer of Applied EM Inc, a small company specializing in computational electromagnetics, antenna design and development. At Applied EM, Dr. Reddy successfully led many Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) projects from the US Department of Defense (DoD). In 1991, he was awarded NSERC Visiting Fellowship to conduct research at Communications Research Center, Ottawa, Canada. Later in 1993, he was awarded a National Research Council (USA)'s Research Associateship to conduct research in computational electromagnetics at NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, Virginia.
Dr. Reddy worked as a Research Professor at Hampton University from 1995 to 2000, while conducting research at NASA Langley Research Center. During this time, he developed various FEM codes for electromagnetics. He also worked on design and simulation of antennas for automobiles and aircraft structures. Particularly development of his hybrid Finite Element Method/Method of Moments/Geometrical Theory of Diffraction code for cavity backed aperture antenna analysis received Certificate of Recognition from NASA.
Dr. Reddy is a Senior Member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and also Antenna Measurement Techniques Association (AMTA). He is also a member of Applied Computational Electromagnetic Society and serves as a member of Board of Directors. He has published more than 60 referred journal articles and conference papers so far.
