Bent Patch Antenna

Hello!

I am a new user to openEMS and am interested to do antenna simulations in order to calculate radiation patterns and gains due to plasma environment. I will be getting the plasma environment from CFD simulations.

I had a specific question regarding the bent patch antenna setup. Can it be bent to conform to any shape, and specifically to a cone?

Thanks for your help,
Andreas

Hi,

the example/tutorial shows the cylindrical mesh and how it can easily simulate a bent patch. But this means it does only work for everything that can be expressed in cylindrical coordinates.
That means no, a cone is not that simple...

regards
Thorsten

Hi Thorsten,

Not that simple, but not impossible?

What would it require to make the antenna conform to any kind of shape?

Thanks!
Andreas
