AN EXTENSION OF THE KELVIN IMAGE THEORY TO THE CONDUCTING HEAVISIDE ELLIPSOID

By D. V. Redzic, M. S. A. Eldakli, and M. D. Redzic

Full Article PDF (187 KB)

Abstract:
The Kelvin image theory for a conducting sphere is extended to the case of a conducting oblate spheroid in uniform motion along its axis of revolution (a Heaviside ellipsoid) using the well-known method provided by Special Relativity. The results derived are checked in various ways.
