This thesis presents an experimental approach to the problem of finding the characteristic impedance of a rectangular stripline with an off-set inner conductor. It employs an enlarged scale model of the transmission line, immersed in an electrolytic tank, as one branch of a simple bridge circuit. One adjacent branch of the bridge circuit consists of a similar model of a transmission line with known characteristic impedance. A complete analogy is derived between the field pattern in the transmission line and the current pattern in the model.
