Abstract : The method of moments is applied to various wire antenna problems for the purpose of investigating the following trade-offs: (1) accuracy of current distributions on the structure, (2) general applicability of several expansion functions to a variety of geometries, (3) computer storage requirements, and (4) computer central processor time (CPU). Three computer programs designed to treat radiation and scattering problems for thin-wire structures by the method of moments were compared extensively with each other and with experimental data. Each of these three programs are available in the literature and represent a variety of different techniques such as pulse, triangle, and sinusoidal expansion functions, respectively, to determine current distributions.
