  • Application of generalised circular and rectangular mode matching techniques to the design of antennas

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):1/1 - 1/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (284 KB)

    An existing rectangular mode matching package `CORREC' previously developed for the analysis and design of pyramidal and corrugated horn antennas has been extended so that multiple rectangular apertures can be incorporated in a general fashion. Furthermore, ridged waveguide structures can also be included in the analysis. Such a generalised software package can be used to design mono-pulse feed ho... View full abstract»

  • The development of an optimal NEC model of a skeletal biconical antenna for use with antenna factor prediction

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):5/1 - 5/8
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (340 KB)

    A useful development of the modelling approach to antenna calibration is to accept that it is not practical to measure antenna factors directly and instead compare values of another antenna parameter, which can be measured accurately, with predictions derived from a model. One such parameter is drive-point impedance and, if a model can be developed which returns a drive-point impedance that agrees... View full abstract»

  • The validation and application of NEC and MININEC

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):7/1 - 7/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (252 KB)

    The computation of the radiation and scattering characteristics of antennas by means of the method of moments has now reached a stage of maturity after a decade or so of intensive use of various moment method codes. Arguably the most versatile of these, and certainly the best known is the Numerical Electromagnetics Code (NEC). Possibly equally well-known, though more limited in application, is MIN...

  • Computer aided design of corrugated horns

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):2/1 - 2/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (284 KB)

    The conical corrugated horn has become the prime choice for use as a feed for high performance reflector antennas in communications, radar and remote sensing systems. This is partly because the radiation characteristics are ideal with good copolar pattern symmetry and low levels of cross polarisation. It is also because corrugated horns can be designed, using a computer, with a high degree of reli... View full abstract»

  • PLANAR: a computer program for planar array antenna design

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):9/1 - 9/5
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (228 KB)

    Whereas the computation of the radiation patterns for planar array antennas is relatively straightforward for simple elements and uniform illumination, the design of practical array antennas and the evaluation of candidate configurations are facilitated by computer modelling. The computer program PLANAR provides a method of modelling array antennas for a variety of element types and aperture distr... View full abstract»

  • Verification and validation of a diffraction program

    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (220 KB)

    In the context of electromagnetics programs, verification is the checking of input data and validation is the checking of output results. These divide into several sections which partially correspond to the IEEE/ANSI definitions as follows (IEEE/ANSI terms in brackets): checking data entry for correct type and range (not allowed for in IEEE/ANSI); checking the program specification (error); checki...

  • Problems concerning the validation of moment-method models of small aircraft in the HF band

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):6/1 - 6/8
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (304 KB)

    Considers an example of a moment-method modelling procedure which has been applied previously to other generic aircraft and antenna types. The overall aim of these studies is to provide a `recipe' for the prediction of airborne HF antenna system characteristics; the application of which will produce estimates of near as well as far-field dependent parameters which are credible and sufficiently acc...

  • Design of a microstrip array antenna for a short-range two-way microwave system

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):8/1 - 8/8
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (184 KB)

    In the design of a microstrip planar array antenna, the individual patches can be in close proximity to each other, it is therefore necessary to consider the effect that the mutual coupling between the individual patches has on the performance of an antenna. The paper presents a method which takes into account this mutual coupling between the patches and how it affects the input reflection coeffic... View full abstract»

  • Computer aided design of complex antennas

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):3/1 - 310
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (380 KB)

    Presents the use of several numerical methods for designing complex W-band reflector antennas, for use in a radar system, and an overmoded cavity fed helical antenna array. The paper shows the use of the moment method (MM) and time domain finite difference simulation (TDFDS) for determining the VSWR of an axi-symmetric splash-plate reflector, and the MM for designing a low VSWR axi-symmetric horn/...
