Bio-electromagnetic simulation with Dr. Tilmann Wittig

Following the success of CST's recent bio-electromagnetic (bio-EM) workshops, we sat down with
Dr. Tilmann Wittig, Principal Engineer and Market Coordinator for bio-EM to share an introduction to this challenging and fascinating subject.

First, what do you do at CST?

I coordinate the “Bio-Electromagnetics” market here at CST. We refer to bio-EM whenever we simulate an EM source like e.g. a mobile phone, an MRI, a hearing aid or a pacemaker inside or nearby biological tissue, which in most cases will be a full or partial human body model. In other cases, we may also use animal models or just simplified homogeneous phantom models, representing a kind of average human tissue.

So, what is so special about simulating an EM problem containing tissues? 


One major reason is that bio-EM is one of the few domains where measurement of electromagnetic fields is mostly not an option since we cannot, or at least don’t want to, put field probes into a living human. From a simulation point of view, we face the special challenge of having “wet” tissues with a high content of water that makes both the permittivity and the material losses quite high. In addition, we typically have to deal with complex shapes and various layers of materials with significantly differing properties. Depending on the type of application, these properties can have a severe impact on the device design and functionality. To make such devices work in the presence of complex human tissue distribution is often a challenge!

What kinds of devices are being simulated?

MRI image: Courtesy of German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ)

We have two categories of devices we deal with: First, are devices we want to penetrate human tissue, that’s, for example, MRI or other imaging, pacemaker simulation, where the pacemaker is implanted, or any kind of implant for which there may be wireless charging. So, in that case, we want to be able to send an EM signal inside the body which is much more challenging than it may appear at first glance since high permittivity materials will reflect large amounts of the electromagnetic waves. The problem gets especially hard if we have several layers of biological tissue with very different permittivity e.g. from the skin, via fat and muscle to bone.

Second, we have devices where we just want to communicate in the presence of the body, like a mobile phone or various Bluetooth or soon IoT devices. With such devices, we’d be happy if nothing went inside the body because this means unwanted losses in the body due to penetration. That increases power assumption and affects the battery lifetime of the device but even worse: the problem is, we aren’t quite sure where that energy is placed and what effects it may cause inside the body. The only simulation can give us a hint how much power we have with a certain body position!
Due to the potential hazard, it is also a governmental requirement, every device that’s intended to work in or around the body needs a certificate of its SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) value. You’ll see what the SAR value is, for example, in the small print on your phone and the lower the value, the
better because less energy is going into your body.

Bio-EM is a challenging domain with a large variety of applications. It is important that a device which is intended to work inside or nearby the body is designed taking into consideration a body model to guarantee functionality in this environment, and that at the same time the power levels inside the body are well controlled. It’s interesting that these two kinds of optimization goals are contradictory. We have some customers who need penetration and they are trying to optimize to maximize the penetration like an MRI, and then we have customers who make mobile communication devices and they are optimizing for minimal penetration. 


Dr. Tilmann Wittig
Stay tuned for part two of this interview, in which Dr. Wittig shares the most interesting medical innovations being developed with the help of bio-electromagnetic simulation.

EM Simulation at SAE Aviation Technology Forum

Next week, CST’s Marco Kunze will give a talk at the SAE Aviation Technology Forum in Shanghai. With the inaugural flight of C919, the first Chinese-built passenger jetliner, hopes are running high for the future of Chinese commercial aircraft. The nascent industry will need tools for design, and when it comes to aerospace, taking electromagnetic effects into consideration is extremely important.
Kunze, an expert on aerospace and E3, will be advocating for the use of software to simulate these effects in the design stage, which can reduce the number of rounds of costly prototypes needed.
Catch Dr. Kunze’s talk at the SAE Aviation Technology Forum  on June 6th


If you are interested in simulation and aircraft design, check out our full interview with Dr. Kunze earlier this year.  

"The move away from aluminum means aircraft can be lighter, but it also means the aircraft is less conductive and that has consequences. Composite materials offer less shielding from environmental EM, whether radar or lightning strikes. CST can model complex multilayer materials efficiently, making it possible to simulate these new materials accurately. The calculated power loss in the materials can then be used in a multiphysics simulation in order to investigate thermal effects during a lightning strike."- Marco Kunze.



 For our readers who speak Chinese, check out this blog post from our colleagues at Dassault Systèmes China on the role 3DS technology has played in every aspect of design and production of the C919.

CST STUDIO SUITE 2017 now available on the Rescale cloud HPC platform


Enjoy this guest post from Jonathan Oakley, VP Marketing at Rescale about our exciting new partnership. Read the full press release on our website. 

CST STUDIO SUITE 2017 now available on the Rescale cloud HPC platform.


Rescale is very pleased to be partnering with CST and offering an alternative option for high-performance computing (HPC). Traditionally, the computer for running STUDIO simulations sits on your desk or in your company's server room. Your company may even maintain a computer cluster managed by your IT team. The problem with these resources is that they are expensive to buy and maintain, need updating regularly, don't scale well and are typically shared with others. All this can give rise to slower turnaround times than desired and a general level of frustration with IT.

A very modern alternative is cloud HPC. Much like CRM systems and data storage have already made strong moves to the cloud, HPC is the next stage in the evolution of cloud computing. Data centers from AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and many others offer substantial computing resources using the latest technology. Running simulations on these machines offer instant access, fast turnaround, and high security.

Rescale offers an easy to use the platform to access this HPC "multi-cloud" and with around 60 data centers worldwide, data can usually be kept in the country if desired. High security is a top priority and Rescale has put substantial resources into this, achieving all the appropriate accreditations. If you would like to try CST STUDIO SUITE 2017 on the Rescale platform, please signup for a trial account at www.rescale.com or email info@rescale.com.
