- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after July 19, 2021
Stealth technology is a crucial pre-requisite in the combat zone where swiftness, surprise and initiative are the decisive elements for survivability. The supreme goal here is to reduce the visibility of military vehicles by shaping, application of radar absorbing materials, passive cancellation, active cancellation etc. With respect to multi-layered radar absorbing structures (RAS), this book presents an efficient algorithm based on particle swarm optimization (PSO), for the material selection as well as optimization of thickness of multi-layered RAS models considering both normal as well as oblique incidence cases. It includes a thorough overview of the theoretical background required for the analysis of multi-layered RAS as well as the step-by-step procedure for the implementation of PSO based algorithm. The accuracy and computational efficiency of the indigenously developed code is also clearly established using relevant validations and case studies.
- Provides step-by-step procedure for the implementation of Particle-Swarm optimization (PSO) based algorithm in the context of multi-layered radar absorbing structures (RAS) design.
