CST – Computer Simulation Technology

CST Studio Suite – BioEM workshop

Join us for an exciting opportunity to learn about the latest developments in 3D electromagnetic (EM) simulation.

This workshop aims to give design and research engineers an insight into the latest 3D simulation technology for designing electromagnetic devices and systems for the BioEM and medical market. The workshop will provide an informal environment for technical discussions, presentations and user talks that will be both beneficial for the novice as well as the experienced user.

Fee: Free of charge
No registration possible.


  • 9.30 a.m. Coffee & registration
  • 10:00 a.m. Welcome & introduction: Tilmann Wittig, CST
  • Getting started with Bio-Medical Simulations: biological material properties, human/animal modelling, human posing, specific post-processing, compliance standards, Bioheat simulation including blood diffusion, metabolism and human thermo-regulation.

  • 11:15 a.m. Coffee break
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging devices are probably the most challenging BioEM systems to design, as electromagnetic fields at various frequencies need to interact. SIMULIA provides a full range of tools for their design, including: superconducting magnet design, shielding optimization, gradient coil design (provided by the SIMULIA OPERA solvers), RF birdcage coils as well as multi-channel local coils (including tuning, matching and decoupling of those), Bioheat solvers including human thermoregulation and CEM43°C standard, MRI implant safety simulation.

    The talk will describe the translational effort of using computer mechanics simulations as a support of the care of cardiovascular diseases. In particular, the presentation will describe the last upgrades of the workflow of patient-specific simulations and how these can become part of the clinical decision support system.

  • 1:00 p.m. Lunch
  • Humans are almost permanently exposed to EM fields. BioEM-Simulation is widely used to analyse if the field strength may reach harmful levels. Various examples in different frequency bands will be presented: a 50Hz welding gun, the drive train of an e-vehicle, maintenance on antenna towers and vehicular antenna application in a military environment. The applied standards for certification are IEEE/IEC 62704-1 (SAR) and ICNIRP for different frequencies.

  • 2:40 p.m. Customer Talk
  • 3:00 p.m. Coffee break
  • Life Sciences for Dassault Systèmes covers 3 segments – medical devices, Pharma/biotech, and patient care - that have hitherto been quite distinct, at least in terms of computational tools and technologies. However, all segments are ultimately concerned with patient health and satisfaction, and this presentation will demonstrate how Virtual Human Modelling R&D at Dassault Systèmes is developing solutions for all 3 segments and in the process deepening, diversifying, and democratizing the use of simulation in healthcare.

    The human body provides a challenging environment for any form of communication and data transfer. This holds for mobile phones or smart watches as well as for body sensors and body area networks. Beside the communication properties the safety aspects also need to be considered. The presentation shows the simulation of three wearable antennas at the 870 MHz RFID band, 2.4 GHZ ISM and 6GHz UWB, including a lot of tips and tricks how to setup the simulation efficiently.

    BioEM opens completely new medical fields, widely referred to as “Smart-Health”. EM-sensors will allow a reliable patient monitoring far from hospitals, sensors may replace invasive approaches, implants get miniaturized, new ways of imaging (microwave imaging) and cancer treatment by ablation or hyperthermia will be described.
