Abstract:

Measurements are described that serve to verify a recently reported new theory of arrays of arbitrarily located parallel elements including especially ones that are collinear and staggered. Since the theory takes full account of the effects of mutual coupling in determining the distributions of current in each element of an array, the experimental studies involved the determination of distribution of current and charge as well as admittances and field patterns. Since the theory should be a good approximation for dipole elements well over a wavelength long, complete measurements are reported for arrays of both half-wave and full-wave elements in collinear and planar arrangements. Experimental and theoretical results are in good agreement. Author
