Title: Relativistic particle beam in a semi-infinite, axially symmetric conducting channel extending from a perfectly conducting plane

Abstract

The electromagnetic field configuration generated if there is no wall surrounding the channel is investigated. An azimuthally symmetric channel of given uniform, finite, conductivity and radius is treated. It is shown that if Q is the total charge in the pulse, then the total charge that passes through any plane z > 0 is exactly equal to Q and that as the pulse moves through the channel and the distance from the ground plane to the pulse approaches infinity, the electromagnetic field configuration approaches that which results from the steady state with the same pulse moving in a channel of infinite length in the absence of a ground state.

  • The scattering of a plane electromagnetic wave by a perfectly conducting semi-infinite screen embedded in a homogeneous plasma is investigated. A uniform magnetic field is assumed to be impressed externally in a direction parallel to the edge of the half-plane. The plasma is idealized by a dielectric characterized by a tensor dielectric constant. The direction of the incident wave is assumed to be in a plane perpendicular to that of the screen. This vector problem is separable into two equivalent scalar problems for which either the electric or the magnetic vector is parallel to the edge of the half-plane. Itmore » is found that for the case of the E-mode, the magnetic vector parallel to the edge of the half-plane satisfies a simple waveequation and a new type of impedance boundary condition on the screen. This problem is formulated in terms of an integral equation which specifies the current induced on the screen. The integral equation is of the Wienner-Hopf type and is solved by the usual function- theoretic methods. A surface wave is found to exist for one orientation of the external magnetic field, and the characteristics of this surface wave are determined. (auth)« less
  • Equations for an approximate determination of the eigenmodes for the steady-state flow in a gas centrifuge operating at high angular speed and considering the effects of heat conduction are presented. The equations are written in cylindrical coordinates and the nonlinear parts of the inertial terms are neglected. It was convenient to use a system of coordinates that rotates with the angular velocity of the centriguge. The asymptotic solutions derived from these equations are compared with results obtained from the digital computer with a close agreement being noted. (H.G.G.)
  • The radiation arising in the passage of a charged particle in uniform straight motion through a circular opening in an ideally conducting plane screen, normal to the particle path, is investigated. The exact solution is obtained in the form of a series of spherical functions. Numerical evaluation is also considered. (auth)
  • A two-dimensional, semi-infinite analytical solution of the transient temperature and the thermal stress due to heating from the bending magnet beam missteering in the APS has been developed. In order to solve the thermal stress analytically, an effective absorption function is introduced, and the transient temperature can be written as a function of the exponential integrals. At the origin where the peak power is applied, the effective stress is found to be the maximum and is undergoing simple compression along the longitudinal direction. The result utilizing finite element method (FEM) applied to the chamber cross section is also presented andmore » agrees fairly well with the current analytical solution during the early small time scale.« less
  • The scattering of a plane electromagnetic wave of wavenumber k by a perfectly conducting infinite strip of width 2a is investigated for the case in which the surrounding medium is gyrotropic. The gyrotropic axis is taken parallel to the edges of the strip. The problem is formulnted in terms of an integral equation whose solution is obtained in the form of a series in powers of ka. Expressions for the far-zone fields and the first two terms in the series for the total scattering cross section are obtained. (auth)
