In this paper it is present the influence of the wind on a parabolic antenna, in order to study this influence it was made simulations of air flow over a parabolic antenna. The simulations are made with antenna positioned at 90°, 135°. A three – dimensional finite element is simulated for determination of the antenna displacement.
