Figure 12 presents the impact of a 30-degrees twisting angle on measured ii-plane polar radiation patterns for patch 2, located close to the maximal mechanical strains zone (close to the twisting systems) for the conventional (red curves) and MTM (blue curves) antennas.
Figure 13 presents the impact of a 70 mm tip bending displacement load on measured E-plane polar radiation patterns for patch 4, located in the middle of the patch network, close to the maximal mechanical strains, for the conventional (red curves) and MTM (blue curves) antennas.
However, one prime characteristic that determines how any of them will interact with differing microphone techniques will be the polar radiation patterns of a pair of them (or of a larger group of speakers if a surround-sound installation is involved) and the way those patterns interact with room boundaries.
