## TIME DOMAIN INTEGRAL EQUATION APPROACH FOR ANALYSIS OF TRANSIENT RESPONSES BY METALLIC-DIELECTRIC COMPOSITE BODIESBy G.-H. Zhang, M. Xia, and C. H. Chan
Abstract:
A time domain integral equation approach for analysis of transient responses by 3D composite metallic-dielectric bodies is proposed, which is formulated using the surface equivalent polarization and magnetization as unknown functions. The time domain electric field integral equation is adopted for the metallic part, while the time domain Piggio-Miller-Chang-Harrington-Wu integral equations are adopted for the dielectric part. The spatial and temporal basis functions are the Rao-Wilton-Glisson functions and quadratic Bspline functions, respectively. Numerical examples are provided to demonstrate the stability and accuracy of the proposed method. No late-time instability is encountered, and the results are found in good agreements with analytical or moment method solutions.
