ELECTROMAGNETIC IMAGING OF DIELECTRIC CYLINDERS BY DIFFERENTIAL EVOLUTION AND SINGLE INTEGRAL EQUATION

By K. A. Michalski

Full Article PDF (393 KB)

Abstract:
A technique is described for the electromagnetic reconstruction of the location, shape, dielectric constant, and conductivity of buried homogeneous cylinders of elliptic cross-section. The inversion procedure is based on the Differential Evolution algorithm and the forward problem is solved using the single boundary integral method. Simulation results are presented which demonstrate that this hybrid approach can offer a conceptually simple yet efficient and reasonably robust method for the imaging of buried objects and voids.
