IMPROVED SPECTRAL ITERATION TECHNIQUE FOR THE SCATTERING BY THIN METAL PLATES

By S. Costanzo and G. Di Massa

Full Article PDF (164 KB)

Abstract:
The problem of electromagnetic scattering by thin metal plates is formulated in terms of Electric Field Integral Equation and solved by an improved form of the Spectral Iteration Technique. The local solution at the edges of the plate is chosen as initial guess for the unknown surface current in order to guarantee and enhance the convergence of the iterative scheme. Numerical simulations on a square conducting plate are presented to validate the proposed approach.
