Electromagnetic scattering and radiation by surfaces of arbitrary shape in layered media. II. Implementation and results for contiguous half-spaces Academic Article uri icon


  • In Part I of this paper three mixed-potential electric field integral equations (MPIEs) have been formulated for conducting surfaces of arbitrary shape residing in plane-stratified dielectric media with an arbitrary number of layers. One of the MPIEs (Formulation C) was found to be particularly well suited for the application of the method of moments (MM). In Part II of this paper, Formulation C of Part I is specialized to the important case of a scatterer or antenna of arbitrary shape residing in contiguous halfspaces. This MPIE is solved by the MM employing a triangle-patch model of the surface of the object. Sample numerical results are presented for several cases of interest. © 1990 IEEE
