Modal Representation a Horizontal Wire Above a Finitely Conducting Earth by Edward F Kuester( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The modal representation of the fields of a thin horizontal wire (with or without dielectric coating) above the surface of a finitely conducting earth is discussed. A general expression for the excitation of the discrete modes by an aperture field of arbitrary form in the transverse plane is given. As a consequence, it is proved that any discrete mode can be excited with high efficiency with an aperture of finite size. The dependence of the discrete modal propagation constants of the discrete modes upon various physical parameters is investigated in some detail and the possibility of mode degeneration is demonstrated. Field plots of the discrete modes are presented which show the qualitative differences between the so-called 'transmission-line' mode and the recently discovered 'earth-attached' mode. (Author)
Propagating Modes on a Buried Leaky Coaxial Cable by Steven W Plate( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Characteristics of the discrete propagating modes on a buried leaky coaxial cable are investigated in this report. Provided the transfer inductance of the braid is small, three distinct propagating modes for most of the cable depths were found. The first mode has a field structure closely associated with the TEM-mode of a coaxial line and referred to as a bifilar mode because of its almost equal but opposite current on the two conductors. The second mode has a field structure located mainly outside the cable in the earth region and is referred to as a monofilar mode. The third mode which exists only for certain cable depths has a field more spread out over the air-earth interface and is referred to as a surface-attached mode. Unlike the case of an elevated wire, no degeneracy of modes is observed for parameters of practical interest. (Author)
Characteristics of Discrete Propagation Modes on a System of Horizontal Wires over a Dissipative Earth by Steven W Plate( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An equation for determining the propagation constants of the discrete modes of propagation on a system of m parallel thin wires above a dissipative earth is derived. Approximations to the Sommerfeld integrals involved in the modal equation that are accurate for relatively large values of the earth's refractive index are found and rigorous errors bounds for these approximations are obtained. Plots of the complex propagation constants for a dual bare wire line are calculated. A degeneracy is shown to exist between the two bifilar modes and in addition, one of the bifilar modes is seen to disappear into the improper Riemann sheet for small spacings between the two wires.

Fundamental Limitations on the Terminal Behavior of Antennas and Nonuniform Transmission Lines by Randal Hugh Direen( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Authoritative Dictionary of IEEE Standard Terms provides two definitions for the quality factor, or Q, of a resonant system. These definitions suggest a fundamental relationship between the fractional bandwidth of a resonant system and the ratio of stored energy to dissipated energy within that system. We show this relationship is in general not true. The success of this relationship, however, inspires the research that follows. We seek to fine a more general, and fundamental, relationship between the energy within a system and the terminal behavior of that system. We apply our ideas to antennas theory and the theory of nonuniform transmission lines

Reverberation Chamber Characterization Using Enhanced Backscatter Coefficient Measurements by Colton Ray Dunlap( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary focus of this thesis is to evaluate the use of the enhanced backscatter coefficient as a quantity for characterizing the spatial uniformity of the reverberation chamber (RC). An RC is a statistical measurement facility constructed from a large metallic hallow cavity containing an irregularly shaped paddle stirrer for mixing electromagnetic fields to obtain many statistically independent samples. The average power, measured from antennas placed inside of the RC, is ideally uniform over any chosen antenna position and orientation within the RC's working volume. Spatial uniformity is a fundamental assumption to all RC theoretical analysis, and thus the spatial dependence of the RC is directly related to the uncertainty of the measurements. Comparisons are made with standard multiple-configuration measurements (different antenna positions) to show that comparable values of standard deviation caused by spatial non-uniformity are obtained using the transfer function (as typically used) and the enhanced backscatter coefficient. Additionally, it is shown that the enhanced backscatter coefficient for an ideal RC is theoretically a constant value of 2, but has variation over frequency when measured. This variation over frequency is used in a single-configuration measurement to obtain values of standard deviation that are nearly the same as those found using multiple-configuration measurements. This is possible because the statistical variation of the reverberation chamber is similar over frequency and over different measurement positions. Furthermore, data is presented from various tests showing that the value of the enhanced backscatter coefficient is sensitive to calibration issues, and the improper use of frequency stirring. This helps to justify that the enhanced backscatter coefficient can be used as a benchmark quantity for determining if computations from the RC measured data are useful and can be trusted. One- and two-dimensional Green's function models are also used to explore the enhanced backscatter coefficient value for different types of stirring mechanisms. Lastly, application of the enhanced backscatter coefficient for determining the total efficiency of an antenna measured in the reverberation chamber is presented. Along with the estimates of total efficiency, the confidence interval of the results is computed from the frequency variation of the enhanced backscatter coefficient
Excitation of current on an infinite horizontal wire over the earth by an arbitrary electric dipole source by Ahmad Hoorfar( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Excitation of propagating modes on a long horizontal wire over the earth by an arbitrary oriented dipole source is investigated. It is shown that with proper tailoring of sources, it is feasible to provide stronger excitation for either the structured-attached mode or the earth-attached mode relative to the others. In general, because the transmission-line (structured-attached) mode usually has higher attenuation in the frequency range of interest, larger percentage change in total current due to the scattering obstacles can be achieved when a smaller wire height is used. Numerical result for scattering due to dielectric obstacles modeling human bodies is included

Propagating Modes along a Thin Wire Located above a Grounded Dielectric Slab( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The possible propagating modes supported by a wire located parallel to a grounded dielectric slab are investigated. While at low frequencies a quasi-TEM behavior is exhibited, it is shown numerically that under certain conditions, a very different surface-attached character emerges. These results suggest the possibility of similar behavior occurring in the related, but more difficult to analyze configuration of open microstrip lines. The particular structure analyzed here is of interest mainly because of its potential application in air strip ground radar monitoring system, which conceivably can consist of a horizontal wire located above a reinforced concrete slab lying above a conducting earth surface
