Placing the Antenna on the Platform in CADFEKO

The antenna is placed on the platform and remeshed.

  1. Place the antenna on the platform (roof of the vehicle) using the Align tool.

    Figure 1. A 3D view showing the antenna placed on the roof of the vehicle. A cross-sectional view shows how the platform only intersects the PEC base.
  2. Mesh only the antenna geometry (which includes the base of the antenna)1.

    Figure 2. Antenna was remeshed.
    Note: There is no mesh connectivity between the antenna and the platform.
