Abstract : Electric dipoles which are tangent to the outer surface of a dielectric layer backed by a curbed metallic surface (modeled by a circular cylinder) are considered. The exact solution to this problem is utilized to obtain numerically the current distribution, input impedance and radiation pattern for a thin rectangular patch antenna, center fed or not. For very large cylinders, asymptotic solutions based on ray tracing are considered. (Author)
