Wave Propagation Along a Thin Dielectric Coated Wire Buried in the Earth,
OFFICE OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS BOULDER COLO INST FOR TELECOMMUNICATION SCIENCES
Pagination or Media Count:
The article considers propagation along a thin dielectric coated wire that is parallel to the interface between two homogeneous half-spaces. The solution obtained correctly accounts for the presence of the interface provided the coating radius is small compared with the distance to the interface. The final results are simplified in form when dealing with long insulated antennas buried in the earth and operating at low frequencies. Numerical data, given in tabulated form, are provided for a representative set of conditions. Author
