Abstract:

This document is a summary of work performed in applying thin-wire modeling techniques in support of antenna analysis at NELC during FY74. Detailed discussion is limited to aspects which show how numerical modeling has contributed to an engineering solution. References cited throughout the document provide a source for more complete coverage of a given subject. The first part is intended as an introduction for the uninitiated reader but may prove informative also to those using the same computer codes. The second part describes how thin-wire modeling has been applied to several engineering problems. Thin-wire modeling is demonstrated to be a useful engineering tool in problems involving determination of current distribution, impedance, near- and far-field electric and magnetic components, and efficiency. Listings of the specialized subroutines added by NELC to the AMP program are appended.
