Abstract:

Three user-oriented computer programs are presented and described for analyzing radiation from arrays of parallel vertical wires, parallel horizontal wires, and also arbitrary wire configurations over the surface of an imperfectly conducting earth. The first two programs are equipped to treat unequally spaced arrays of wires that can be of different lengths and radii and of arbitrary excitation and loading. The effects of the imperfectly conducting earth are accounted for in an essentailly exact manner by using the Sommerfeld formulation. The third program treats arbitrary wire antennas and incorporates the ground effects approximately by using the reflection-coefficient method. Computed output consists of current distribution, input impedances, and field patterns specified by the user.
