Jha, RM and Mahapatra, PravasR and Wiesbeck, Werner (1994) Surface-ray tracing on hybrid surfaces of revolution for UTD mutual coupling analysis. IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, 42 (8). pp. 1167-1175.Full text not available from this repository.
An angle invariance property based on Hertz's principle of particle dynamics is employed to facilitate the surface-ray tracing on nondevelopable hybrid quadric surfaces of revolution (h-QUASOR's). This property, when used in conjunction with a Geodesic Constant Method, yields analytical expressions for all the ray-parameters required in the UTD formulation. Differential geometrical considerations require that some of the ray-parameters (defined heuristically in the UTD for the canonical convex surfaces) be modified before the UTD can be applied to such hybrid surfaces. Mutual coupling results for finite-dimensional slots have been presented as an example on a satellite launch vehicle modeled by general paraboloid of revolution and right circular cylinder.
