This paper aims to present an effective electromagnetic (EM) modelling approach for circular bundle of single-walled carbon nanotubes (CBSWCNTs), based on the electrical conductivity, relative complex permittivity and linear distribution impedance by applying General Ohms law for this bundle. The equivalent single conductor material (ESCM) model for personification the CB-SWCNTs is presented in this paper. The main target of this modelling approach is to estimate and investigate the EM properties of CBSWCNTs using common EM engineering tool solver CST (MWS). For this purpose, the CB-SWCNTs and ESCM dipole antennas will be designed and implemented using CST (MWS). Mathematically, the equivalent conductivity model, relative complex permittivity and other parameters of the CB-SWCNTs will be derived in this paper and considered as equivalent material parameters for the ESCM. This modelling technique is expected to provide new avenues for designing different antenna structures.
