Abstract:

The report describes a digital computer program which is designed to compute the terminal currents induced in a multiconductor transmission line by an incident electromagnetic field. Sinusoidal steady state behavior of the line is assumed. The transmission line is uniform and consists of n wires and a reference conductor immersed in a homogeneous, lossless, linear, isotropic medium. The n wires and the reference conductor are assumed to be lossless. The reference conductor may be a wire, an infinite ground plane or an overall, cylindrical shield. The incident electromagnetic field may be a uniform plane wave or a general nonuniform field. The primary restriction on the program validity is that the cross sectional dimensions of the line, e.g., wire separation, must be much less than a wavelength.
