Abstract:

The surface current density induced on finite length cylindrical scatterers, of moderately thin radius, has been investigated experimentally. The results of this investigation clearly show an angular variation of the axially directed current density on cylinders of electrical radius ka 0.04. The data has been analyzed to express the current density as a Fourier series in the angle variable Phi. The results of this analysis show that the angularly independent component is essentially in agreement with solutions based on a thin wire approximation, while the cosnPhi terms are essentially constant with respect to z. Comparisons are then made with the known solutions for an infinitely long cylindrical scatterer. Author
