Conformal Antenna Design

Recommended Posts



How can we construct a conformal patch antenna mounted on or embedded in a curved surface? Secondly, which solver setup is recommended for an accurate and time-efficient simulation?

Hi hykr,


One way would be using the "Project" function in CADFEKO (see attached video). However, the length of edges will change if they aren't orthongonal to the direction of curvature, It will depend on the degree of curvature, how much the length will change. For complex models there may be better solutions.


Regarding the best solver, this of course depends strongly on complexity and size of yor model. In case there are both small/complex parts and large parts, it may be feasible to decompose the mode, e.g. by replacing small/complex parts by equvalent near fields.


If you could attach an example model, I may be able to help more.
