Bent Patch Antenna
==================

* Setup & Simulate a bent patch antenna using a cylindrical mesh

Introduction
-------------
**This tutorial covers:**

* Setup of a Bent Patch Antenna (see for comparison: :ref:`simple_patch_antenna`)
* setup of a *cylindrical FDTD mesh*.
* Calculate the S-Parameter and input impedance
* Calculate far-field pattern 2D/3D
