An Improved Thin Wire Representation for FDTD Transient Simulations


The equivalent radius of a thin wire, which is represented by forcing the tangential electric field along the wire axis to zero in a three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain simulation, has been evaluated on the basis of a surge or characteristic impedance of a perfectly conducting horizontal wire above a perfectly conducting ground. It is 0.199Δs… (More)
