In the original publication of the article, the left-hand side of Eq. (8) had been mistakenly changed to σc instead of σx. The correct equation should read as given below:
$$ \sigma_{x} = \gamma z\cos^{2} \beta \frac{{[1 - 2({c \mathord{\left/ {\vphantom {c {\gamma z}}} \right. \kern-0pt} {\gamma z}})\tan \phi ]\left\{ {\cos \beta + j\sqrt \Delta } \right\} - {{2({c \mathord{\left/ {\vphantom {c {\gamma z}}} \right. \kern-0pt} {\gamma z}})^{2} } \mathord{\left/ {\vphantom {{2({c \mathord{\left/ {\vphantom {c {\gamma z}}} \right. \kern-0pt} {\gamma z}})^{2} } {\cos \beta }}} \right. \kern-0pt} {\cos \beta }}}}{(\cos \beta - j\sqrt \Delta )} $$

The original article has been corrected.
