Abstract : A general analytical formulation, based on the method of moments (MM) is described for solving electromagnetic problems associated with off-surface (wire) and aperture radiators on finite-length cylinders of arbitrary cross section, denoted in this report as bodies of translation (BOT). This class of bodies can be used to model structures with noncircular cross sections such as wings, fins, and aircraft fuselages.
