Hi,
I want to model the radiation pattern, impedance, etc of an antenna (e.g. a dipole) near a custom metal structure. I don't see how to do this in Antenna Toolbox.
Similarly, how do I model a monopole on a circular groundplane inside a metal tube?
Thanks,
Marco

Hello,
You can use the installedAntenna object if the metal structure near the antenna is electrically large or use the conformalArray if the structure is resonant. For the second case you can use the customMonopole.
Hope it helps.
