A multiphysics analysis of dish reflector antennas for radio astronomy applications
MetadataShow full item record
© 2016 European Association of Antennas and Propagation. This work considers a combined structural-electromagnetic analysis of large dish reflector antennas typically used in radio astronomy. The effect of gravitational deformation on the radio telescope is quantified by a structural analysis conducted with a finite element solver. The deformed geometry is then analysed using a computational electromagnetic package from which the performance degradation can be assessed. This offers key insights into the operation of the radio telescope under the influence of external forces, such as gravity.

(2015)We present results from the first 12 months of operation of Radio Galaxy Zoo, which upon completion will enable visual inspection of over 170 000 radio sources to determine the host galaxy of the radio emission and the ...
Mignano, A.; Prandoni, I.; Gregorini, L.; Parma, P.; De Ruiter, H.; Wieringa, M.; Vettolani, G.; Ekers, Ronald (2008)Context. One of the most debated issues about sub-mJy radio sources, which are responsible for the steepening of the 1.4 GHz source counts, is the origin of their radio emission. Particularly interesting, from, this point ...
