Transient response of the infinite cylindrical antenna and scatterer
Abstract
The transient response of an infinite cylindrical antenna and scatterer is obtained by time gating a timedependent electricfield integral equation for thin wires of finitelength. The driving point current and broadside radiated field approximate the driving point voltage in the antenna case, while the current excited in the scattering case approximates the time integral of the incident field. This approximate integral relation is used to estimate currents excited on cylindrical structures without employing the complete integral equation solution procedure.
