Design and development of specialized research and testing projects related to the Direct Effects and Indirect Effects of Lightning, as well as High Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF).
Developing standards based on in-depth electromagnetics research projects.
Extensive experience at modeling aircraft for the Indirect Effects of Lightning (IEL), in particular the software package EMA3D.
Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) using Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) tools and frequency domain tools. Application of these to any aircraft related electromagnetic phenomena.
Published a paper at the 2013 International Conference on Lightning and Static Electricity (ICOLSE). The paper number is CONDON_SEA13-10, and the title is “Shell Resistivities Correlated to Indirect Effects of Lightning”. This paper demonstrated a clear relationship between fuselage conductivity and the IEL levels seen on wiring.
Experience with the application of COMSOL to Direct Effects of Lightning
Modeling/development of spiral resonant sensors using FEKO.
WSU/NIAR has as large cluster computer for executing large and complex electromagnetic models.
Test capabilities to validate the above modeling/analysis.
Much experience with modeling and testing both aluminum and carbon fiber aircraft for all aspect of electromagnetic certification.
