The full SKA will be the world’s largest interferometric radio telescope with a collecting area of 1 million square meters. It is planned to be 10,000 faster and 50 times more sensitive than any existing radio telescope.

In this webinar presented by the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa, we will look into some of the key analysis aspects that are currently being undertaken for the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Phase 1 project using HyperWorks.

The following topics are covered in the webinar:

  • the electromagnetic design and radio interference (RFI) analysis of the large dish reflector antennas and aperture arrays using FEKO
  • a coupled mechanical-electromagnetic analysis for including environmental effects such as gravitational loading on the full dish design (including the backing structure).
