The book provides a lucid overview of electromagnetic theory and a com- prehensive introduction to various types of antennas and their radiation ssachidananda. 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. The calcu- lation of free space communication link budget is illustrated with examples.

It also introduces the vector potential approach to the solution of the wave propagaation and the concept of the Hertzian dipole. We would like to express our gratitude for the excellent propagarion, graphics, and design of the book. Some of the antennas discussed are monopole, V antenna, Yagi—Uda array, turnstile antenna, helix, spiral, microstrip patch, etc. Detailed procedures for the computation of the performance parameters of these antennas are also given.

The book introduces the reader to the fundamentals of antennas and wave propagation with a lucid explanation of the basic concepts and theorems. The terms used for characterizing an antenna as a receiver are also clearly explained.

Electromagnetic Radiation Chapter 2.

Antennas and Wave Propagation

We would like to thank him for his kind gesture. In Chapter 2, students are introduced to the terminology used for describ- ing the radiation and input characteristics of antennas. A large number of exercise problems with varying difficulty levels are included to reinforce theoretical concepts. Finally, Chapter 8 deals with the issues related to the propagation of radio waves.


Indoor and outdoor measurement ranges which provide free-space-like conditions for the antenna are explained. Chapter 6 details a select set of such antennas under the title Special Antennas.

The chapter ends with a dis- cussion on the design of binomial and Chebyshev patterns. We use cookies to enhance your experience on our website. Online and Digital Products.

Antennas and Wave Propagation. Enviado por Felipe flag Denunciar. Antenna Characteristics Chapter 3. The editorial team at Oxford University Press India has done a commendable job in bringing out this book.

Radio Wave Propagation Read More. Apart from the ground and sky wave haarish characteristics, the book also discusses propagation models for urban and rural environments, which are used in the design of mobile phone networks. In fact, it was an antenna which led Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson to their Nobel Prize winning discovery of cosmic background radiation. We appreciate the advice and support from friends and colleagues, which helped us in the preparation of the manuscript.

Currently this book is not available in Flipkart. A minimal use atnennas mathematical physics and emphasis on conceptual understanding make it an ideal text for undergraduate students. Relevant numerical problems with answers have been included as end-chapter exercises to test the understanding of the topics introduced in each chapter. Description Antennas and Wave Propagation is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate students of electrical, electronics, and communications engineering.

The book contains a separate chapter on antenna measurements, which introduces the practical aspects of antenna characterization. Table of contents Chapter 1. A large number of solved problems are interspersed through the text to enable the student to comprehensively grasp concepts and their applications.
