Steady state and transient electromagnetic coupling through slabs
Abstract
The problem of electromagnetic transmission through a slab where transmitting and receiver antennas are at finite distances from the slab is considered. The mathematical formulation of the problem is quite general. A detailed solution is presented for the case of a highly conducting slab exposed to sinusoidal and transient excitations. A discussion is given of the conditions under which measurements with the source and receiver at finite distances are equivalent to the same measurements with plane wave excitation.
