Antennas and Wave Propagation
Enviado por Felipe flag Denunciar. A large number of solved problems are interspersed through the text to enable the student to comprehensively grasp concepts and their applications. We appreciate the advice and support from friends and colleagues, which helped us in the preparation of the manuscript.
The analysis of antennas is almost invariably concomitant with the study of the basic concepts of the propagation of electromagnetic waves through various propagation media and the discontinuities encoun- tered in the path of propagation.

Flipkart Go to Flipkart website. Antennas and Wave Propagation. The editorial team at Oxford University Press India has done a commendable job in bringing out this book.
Schematic block diagrams of the measurement instrumentation are presented.
Some of the antennas discussed are monopole, V antenna, Yagi—Uda array, turnstile antenna, helix, spiral, microstrip patch, etc. A large number of exercise problems with varying difficulty levels are included to reinforce theoretical concepts.
Antennas and Wave Propagation
Keeping this fact in mind, this book emphasizes the conceptual understanding of the principles of radiation and wave prop- agation by keeping the mathematical analysis to a minimum. Chapter 5 is devoted to the study of antenna arrays. The radiation pattern properties and some simple design procedures are explained. Chapter 1 is essentially a review of basic electromagnetic theory. Radio Wave Propagation Read More. You can change your cookie settings at any time.
Antennas vary widely in their shapes, sizes, and radiation characteristics. Teaching the antenna theory course has given us an opportunity to interact with many students. It also introduces the vector potential approach to the solution of the wave equation and the concept of the Hertzian dipole.
Currently this book is not available in Flipkart. The book provides a lucid overview of electromagnetic theory and a com- prehensive introduction to various types of antennas and their radiation characteristics. Chapter 6 details a select set of such antennas under the title Special Antennas. Description Antennas and Wave Propagation is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and communications engineering.
Wire Antennas Chapter 4. Content and Structure This book contains eight chapters which provide a comprehensive treatment of antennas and wave propagation.
The book contains a separate chapter on antenna measurements, which introduces the practical aspects of antenna characterization. Apart from the ground and sky wave propagation characteristics, sachidanznda book also discusses propagation models for urban and rural environments, which are used in the design of mobile phone networks. Further, a clear-cut presentation of the basic concepts of v vi Preface wave propagation, including ground wave and ionospheric propagation, goes on to make this text a useful and self-contained reference on antennas and radio wave propagation.
Electromagnetic Radiation Chapter 2. In fact, it was an antenna which led Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson to their Nobel Prize winning discovery of cosmic background radiation. Detailed explanations of special antenna types as also simplified design procedures for some of the popular antennas are included.
Antennas and Wave Propagation is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and communications engineering. Detailed procedures for the computation of the performance parameters of these antennas are also given. Indoor and outdoor measurement ranges which provide free-space-like conditions for the antenna are explained.
These are followed by a list of references for those interested in further reading. Table of contents Chapter 1. We are grateful to them for enduring the countless hours of absence during the prepara- tion of the manuscript. The chapter ends with a dis- cussion on the design of binomial and Chebyshev patterns. Antenna Arrays Chapter 6. Each chapter is divided into sections that are independent. We would like to express our gratitude for the excellent editing, graphics, and design of the book.
Written in an easy-to-understand manner, the book includes several illustrative examples.
The calcu- lation of free space communication link budget is illustrated with examples. All these devices require an antenna to function.
We sell our titles through other companies Amazon Go to Amazon website. Features Explains concepts clearly with the help of detailed derivations, illustrations, and worked examples Includes simple design procedures for popular antennas Includes detailed explanations on special antenna types Includes propagation issues related to modern communication systems.
It starts with the pattern multiplication principle and goes on to explain various pattern prop- erties using a two-element array as an example. Chapter 7 is focused on the techniques used to measure antenna parame- ters.
