Abstract : A theory is developed for the TM analysis of a two-dimensional strip which is vanishingly thin, perfectly conducting and edge loaded. Integral equations are formulated and solved numerically for the currents on the body, and the scattered fields and radar cross sections are calculated from the currents. Numerical data are presented and a limited parameter study is undertaken. (Author)
