SCATTERING FROM PERFECTLY MAGNETIC CONDUCTING SURFACES: THE EXTENDED THEORY OF BOUNDARY DIFFRACTION WAVE APPROACH

By U. Yalcin

Full Article PDF (187 KB)

Abstract:
In this paper, the uniform scattered fields from a perfectly magnetic conducting (PMC) surface are studied with the extended theory of boundary diffraction wave (TBDW). The vector potential is described by considering the extended TBDW for the PMC surfaces. The extended TBDW is then applied to the problem of scattering from the PMC half plane. The total scattered fields are obtained and compared numerically with the exact solution for the same problem. The numerical results show that the solution of the extended TBDW is very close to the exact solution.
