Abstract:
The surface integral equation method is applied for the electromagnetic analysis of general metallic and dielectric structures of arbitrary shape. The method is based on the EFIE-CFIE-PMCHWT integral equation formulation with Galerkins type discretization. The numerical implementation is divided into three independent steps: First, the electric and magnetic field integral equations are presented and discretized individually in each non-metallic subdomain with the RWG basis and testing functions. Next the linearly dependent and zero unknowns are removed from the discretized system by enforcing the electromagnetic boundary conditions on interfaces and at junctions. Finally, the extra equations are removed by applying the wanted integral equation formulation, and the reduced system is solved. The division into these three steps has two advantages. Firstly, it greatly simplifies the treatment of composite ob jects with multiple metallic and dielectric regions and junctions since the boundary conditions are separated from the discretization and integral equation formulation. In particular, no special junction basis functions or special testing procedures at junctions are needed. Secondly, the separation of the integral equation formulation from the two previous steps makes it easy to modify the procedure for other formulations. The method is validated by numerical examples.
