When performing an electromagnetic simulation, it is often difficult or time consuming to estimate how accurate the results are. In contrast, when doing electromagnetic measurements, making an estimate of the experimental uncertainty is a routine and well-defined process.
The aim of this project is to investigate how to make efficient and accurate estimates of simulation uncertainty that would give someone performing simulations a certain level of confidence in their results.
The project would build on early work in this area at York. The objectives would be to explore and expand potential methods and apply them to simulations within areas such as antenna design for 5G / 6G mobile communication systems or equipment design for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). The precise application area will depend on the interests of the student carrying out the research.
