Image theory for DC problems involving a conducting half space bounded by the general anisotropic impedance surface
Abstract
A novel image theory is introduced. The theory is applicable to DC problems involving current sources in an isotropic conducting half space bounded by a planar, reciprocal, anisotropic impedance surface. The theory is a generalization involving an isotropic impedance surface and that involving a perfect anisotropic impedance surface with zero and infinite resistivities in two orthogonal directions on the plane. The image for a point current source is a combination of an electric line current source and a transverse quadrupole magnetic line current source. The magnetic current component vanishes for vanishing anisotropy while the electric current component vanishes for perfect anisotropy.
