This paper considers expressions of the dyadic Green's function for rectangular enclosures, which are efficient from a computational point of view. The inherent application is to solve numerically electromagnetic scattering problems with an integral equation formulation, using the Method of Moments. The Green's dyadic is derived from an image-spectral approach, which has the flexibility to generate directly the expression with the fastest convergence once the locations of both the observation and the source points are given. When the observation point is at the source region, slowly converging sums arise that are overcome by extending the method of Ewald to the dyadic case. Numerical proofs are reported in tabular form to validate the technique developed.
