Content and Structure This book contains eight chapters which provide a comprehensive treatment of antennas and wave propagation. The calcu- lation of free space communication link budget is illustrated with examples. Each chapter is divided into sections that are independent. Finally, Chapter 8 deals with the issues related to the propagation of radio waves.

We appreciate the advice and support from friends and colleagues, which helped us in the preparation of the manuscript. 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.

It provides a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts of the subject. A large number of antenhas problems with varying difficulty levels are included to reinforce theoretical concepts. Indoor and propaagation measurement ranges which provide free-space-like conditions for the antenna are explained.

Schematic block diagrams of the measurement instrumentation are presented. Detailed explanations of special antenna types as also simplified design procedures for some of the popular antennas are included. Chapter 6 details a select set of such antennas under the title Special Antennas.


We are grateful to them for enduring the countless hours of absence during the prepara- tion of the manuscript.

Online and Digital Products. A minimal use of mathematical physics and emphasis on conceptual understanding make it an ideal text for undergraduate students. The book introduces the reader to the fundamentals of antennas and wave propagation with a lucid explanation of the basic concepts and theorems. Use of polynomial represen- tation of the array factor of a uniformly-spaced linear array and its pole-zero Preface vii representation on a circle diagram is explained.

Antenna Measurements Chapter 8. The terms sachidajanda for characterizing an antenna as a receiver are also clearly explained. We would like to express our gratitude for the excellent editing, graphics, and design of the book. Explains concepts clearly with the help of detailed derivations, illustrations, and worked examples Wavee simple design procedures for popular antennas Includes detailed explanations on special antenna types Includes propagation issues related to modern communication systems.

Chapter 1 is essentially a review of basic electromagnetic theory.

Antennas and Wave Propagation

In this chapter, we study the interaction of the media and the discontinuities with electromagnetic ajtennas. In Chapter 2, students are introduced to the terminology used for describ- ing the radiation and input characteristics of antennas.


Detailed procedures for the computation of the performance parameters of these antennas are also given. Table of contents Chapter 1. Some of the antennas discussed are monopole, V antenna, Yagi—Uda array, turnstile antenna, helix, spiral, microstrip patch, etc.

Chapter 7 is focused on the techniques used to measure antenna parame- ters. All these devices require an antenna to function. The book contains a separate chapter on antenna measurements, which introduces the practical aspects of antenna characterization. Acknowledgements It is a pleasure to thank our wives Radha and Shalini, and children Ans and Bharath for their love, care, and emotional support. A large number of solved problems are interspersed through the text to enable the student to comprehensively grasp concepts and their applications.

Apart from the ground and sky wave propagation characteristics, the book also discusses propagation models for urban and rural environments, which are used in the design of mobile phone networks. Enviado por Felipe flag Denunciar. The chapter ends with a dis- cussion on the design of binomial and Chebyshev patterns.

A class of antennas which can be looked at as radiation from sachidsnanda aperture is treated in Chapter 4.

Antennas and Wave Propagation is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and communications engineering.
