about 30 m. The transmitting antenna is xed in the middle of the main tunnel, while the receiving antenna is being moved away from the middle of the main tunnel into the branch tunnel. A relative dielectric constant r1, 2 s 10 and a conductivity s 0.01 Srm are assumed. We note a rather good agreement between the measured and predicted results along the whole path, no matter whether the receive antenna is in the line-of-sight or the nonline-of-sight regions of the tunnel complex.

MULTIPOLE THEORY ANALYSIS OF VARIOUS CONFIGURATIONS OF SLAB LINES

From 6. 7., AD y BC s 1 is obtained. As we expected, the lossless NTL is a reciprocal two-port network. For s y1, the NTL becomes an LNTL, and the above results coincide with those in w3x. For k s 0, the NTL should become a uniform transmission line. For the LNTL, Lu proved that the above assumption was correct w3x. For the general case in this paper, using the following asymptotic forms 8. of the Bessel functions also see w4x., we obtain that the ABCD parameters of the NTL for k s 0 are identical to those of a uniform transmission line as follows:

ABSTRACT: This paper describes a new approach to the solution of 2-D boundary- alue problems. A new method, the multipole theory (MT) method, is presented for the capacitance of arious slab lines deri ed from three fundamental coaxial structures, which also allows the calculation of the e en and odd capacitance of coupled slab lines. Excellent agreement with results obtained pre iously is demonstrated. 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Microwave Opt Technol Lett 17: 197 200, 1998. Key words: multipole theory; slab line; capacitance 1.

Therefore, the above results of the NTL for k s 0 are correct in this paper. Figure 2 shows a comparison of the normalized S-parameters S11 and S21 of the NTLs for s y1, y2, y3 that have the same length and outputrinput impedance ratio. Figure 2 also clearly exhibits that the phase of S21 almost does not change with . For ) 1, the same conclusions are correct.

Coupled-bar slab lines are extensively used in many UHF and microwave lters. How to determine their capacitances has long been a subject of great interest. Over the past decades, laborious work has been performed on them, and remarkable achievements have been made w1 9x. In this paper, a new method, the multipole theory MT. method, is presented for calculating the capacitances of the various slab transmissionline structures.
