Abstract:

Improved user-oriented computer programs are presented and described for analyzing the electromagnetic behavior of arbitrarily bent thin-wire antennas and scatterers. A given problem can involve several wires of different shapes and radii and the wires can be excited or loaded at arbitrary points along their lengths. Matrix methods are used with the method of moments to compute various quantities of engineering interest. For radiation problems these include current distributions, input impedances, and specified far-field patterns and near-field distributions. For scattering problems the current is again calculated along with specified scattered field and bistatic radar cross-section patterns. Particular emphasis is given to required data input, and illustrative examples are included. Author
