Electromagnetic Simulation Integration Platform on the NetBeans Platform

ZEBRA is an integration platform for electromagnetic simulations created and used internally at EADS. It provides transverse tools such as a 3d viewer (based on VTK), geometry import and cleaning tools, meshing algorithms, and electromagnetic parameter settings.

The goal is to empower the user with an effective methodology for then exporting a simulation to a preferred native solver that will run either locally or on a high performance cluster.

As stated above, several modules are made available:

  • Geometry module
    • Import DMU with product structure
    • Filtering / Localisation / Selection
    • Idealization / De-featuring
    • Cleaning (Remove overlap, stitching, feature removal , ...)
  • Business module
    • Link with electrical design tool (SEE-Topology)
    • Automated bundle optimisation
    • Automated network generation
    • View / Filtering through functional data
  • Meshing module
    • Cartesian meshing tool
    • Quality mesh check
    • Alternative for mesh reparation
    • Triangular Surfacic Remesh (amibe)
    • Metric definitions: (mesh size , size cartography , combination of analytic functions)
  • Solver module
    • Business electromagnetic parameter definition
    • Interface to multiple electromagnetic solvers (FTDT, BEM, ...)

Geertjan Wielenga (@geertjanw) is a Principal Product Manager in the Oracle Developer Tools group living & working in Amsterdam. He is a Java technology enthusiast, evangelist, trainer, speaker, and writer. He blogs here daily.

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
