Abstract

The electromagnetic problem involving the interaction of a low-frequency plane monochromatic wave and a uniformly moving perfectly conducting infinite strip is treated by use of the Lorentz transformation. Both E and H polarizations are considered. Attention is focused on the diffracted cylindrical wave in the far-field approximation, and expressions are derived for its phase and amplitude. Graphical results illustrating amplitude variation as a function of velocity are given.
