ANALYSIS OF A HORIZONTAL TWO-ELEMENT ANTENNA ARRAY ABOVE A DIELECTRIC HALFSPACE. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The mixed-potential integral equation is employed to compute the current distribution on two parallel wire antennas placed horizontally above an air/water interface. The Sommerfeld integrals incorporated in the kernel of the integral equation are evaluated by numerical integration along the steepest-descent path in the complex plane. Sample results are presented for several cases of interest and are compared with measured data.
