A novel interpolation scheme based on Adaptive Integral Method (AIM) is presented to solve electrically large radiation problem of conducting surface/surface configurations. For a complex structure that involves wires and surfaces, three basis functions must be assigned to surfaces, wires and wire/surface junctions. To simplify this, the thin strips with no thickness instead of wires are proposed, and the wire/surface junctions can be replaced by surface/surface junctions, thus it is only necessary to define a uniform basis function. The Electric Field Integral Equation (EFIE) is solved using the Method of Moments (MoM) to obtain the equivalent surface current on PEC surfaces. To facilitate the analysis of electrically large radiation problem, the interpolation scheme based on AIM is employed to accelerate the matrix-vector multiplications and reduce matrix storage. Numerical results are presented to demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the technique.
