How to Connect an Antenna to a HyperMesh Generated Mesh

A workflow is presented on how to connect an antenna model designed in CADFEKO to a platform model that was meshed with Altair HyperMesh.

Figure 1. Workflow to connect a CADFEKO antenna to a platform model meshed with HyperMesh.


As an example, a circular patch antenna designed in CADFEKO to operate at 1 GHz, will be placed on a platform (roof of a vehicle) that was meshed using HyperMesh.
