Computational Engineering and Design
The rapid increases in computer power and the development of efficient numerical methods have facilitated computer simulation of complex low and high frequency electromagnetic phenomena.
The activities in electromagnetic simulations at FCC are for quasi-static applications based on an in-house adaptive finite element software package. Applications have so far been in the fields of medical technology, precipitators and automotive spray painting. Furthermore, we are developing methods and tools for simulation of
electro-optical modulators within an internal Fraunhofer project
focussing on optical technologies for ultra-fast electronics.
For antenna, EMC and radar applications we were key developers in the GEMS (General ElectroMagnetic Solvers), PSCI project 24082-62591, which is now commercialized by the company Efield AB.

Source Localization in the Human Brain
Surgical therapy has become an important therapeutic alternative for patients with medically intractable epilepsy. In this project software tools are developed that based on the EEG signal can obtain a correct and anatomically precise localization of the epileptic focus.
Virtual Paint Shop - Spray Painting
An innovative software for simulation of spray painting in automotive paint shops has been developed. The software is based on research within the MERA and FFI programs funded by Vinnova. Our research partners are Volvo Cars, Saab Automobile, Scania, Volvo AB and Swerea IVF.
