Abstract:

Bistatic scattering cross sections of a thin, perfectly conducting cylinder are developed using the variational method. This method was used by Tai Stanford Research Institute, Tech. Rept. no. 18, March 1951 for obtaining monostatic back scatter radar cross sections. Resulting expressions are developed for wires of 32 WLO length or less, where WLO is the free space wavelength. The wires are assumed to be in air or vacuo. The resulting calculations apply to the case where the incident electric vector lies in the incident plane and the receiving antenna is polarized parallel to the scattering plane.
