Abstract

The performance of wearable and flexible antennas can be greatly affected by bending and crumpling. While these effects have been studied in the literature, the accuracy of simulation in these conditions should be considered. In this paper, the effects of accurate modeling of the excitation, and the supporting structures are investigated.
