Antenna Theory and Design, 2nd Edition by Warren L. Stutzman

By Warren L. Stutzman

Hugely revered authors have reunited to replace the well-known 1981 variation that is nonetheless hailed as the best in its box. This version comprises contemporary antenna strategies and purposes. It encompasses a succinct remedy of the finite distinction, time area (FDTD) computational strategy. it's also the 1st textual content to regard actual concept of diffraction (PTD).

(d) Three-dimensional plot of radiation pattern. with no hole. It is referred to as an omnidirectional pauern since it is uniform in the xy-plane. Omnidirectional antennas are very popular in ground-based applications with the omnidirectional plane horizontal. When encountering new antennas, the reader should attempt to visualize the complete pattern in three dimensions.

If D is the length of the line source, rtf is found by equating the maximum value of the third term of (1-84), which occurs for z' = D/2 and () = 90°, to a sixteenth of a wavelength: (D/2? 2rtf A --=- 16 (1-97) Solving for rtf gives (1-98) The far-field region is r ~ rtf and rtf is called the far-field distance, or Rayleigh distance. The far-field conditions are summarized as follows: 2D2 r>- (1-99a) A r»D r» A far-field conditions (1-99b) (1-99c) The condition r » D was mentioned in association with the approximation R = r of (1-85) for use in the magnitude dependence.

Note that pin (1-48) is related to J in (1-46) by the continuity equation of (1-20). The vector wave equation (1-46) is solved by forming three scalar equations. This begins by decomposing A into rectangular components using (C-18): (1-49) Rectangular components are used·because the unit vectors in rectangular components can be factored out of the Laplacian since they are not themselves functions of coordinates. This feature is unique to the rectangular coordinate system. Although A is always decomposed into rectangular components, the Laplacian of each component of A is expressed in a coordinate system appropriate to the geometry of the problem.
