      An edge-based hybrid finite element boundary integral (FE-BI) method using cylindrical shell elements is described for analyzing conformal quarter-wave patches embedded in a circular cylinder. Special care is also taken to deal with weight functions, dyadic Green’s function, and feed model. Some types of the patch arrays embedded in different circular radius have been developed. The tests of their VSWRs and radiation characteristics are in good agreement with the theoretical results.
