This paper presents modeling and simulation results of monostatic Radar Cross Section (RCS) for scaled model of generic airplane in WIPL-D software. We present simulation times, memory requirements and hardware used for two types of solvers: CPU and GPU.
The airplane is modeled from the sketch in WIPL-D Pro CAD which provides simple and fast solid modeling of complex geometries using built-in primitives, Boolean operations and other features. Length of the model is 310 mm. The simulation was performed in WIPL-D Pro at frequency of 30 GHz.
The model is simulated using both CPU and GPU solvers. CPU solution has been prominent feature of WIPL-D software for many years, but last several years the GPU technology has been flagship product for large scale examples. The PC used for simulation is a regular configuration, rather than an expensive workstation, with simulation time measured in minutes.
