Abstract:

A simple theory based upon traveling wave concepts and the Wiener-Hopf technique is developed which describes the current distributions on tubular cylindrical receiving and transmitting antennas. A close examination of the conditions necessary to obtain sufficiently accurate asymptotic solutions for reflected current distributions is given along with several numerical examples for cooperation. This along with corresponding modification to other relevant terms in the traveling wave solution for a finite length cylindrical antenna allow for the consideration of a much wider range of cylindrical antennas than normally possible under the traditional thin-wire approximations.
