"The current distribution for bent dipole antennas is numerically calculated by using a digital computer. A delta-gap at the center is assumed for the drive. Several different bend-angles are considered including the cases of the straight wire and the inverted-L. The total length of the wire considered is λ/2 while the ratio of the bent portion over the vertical portion is varied. The method of solution is based on Mei's integral equation and the method of moments. The use of Mei's integral equation eliminates the need for the application of the boundary condition at the point of bending. For the basis functions, both the rectangular pulses and the piecewise sinusoids are used in order to compare the convergence. The test functions are the Dirac delta functions"--Abstract, page ii.
