On the Basis Functions with Traveling Wave Phase Factor for Efficient Analysis of Scattering from Electrically Large Targets
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 85, 83-114, 2008
Abstract
A basis function with the traveling wave phase factor, called as the phase extracted (PE) basis functions in this paper, has been applied for efficient solution of scattering from 3 dimensional (3- D) electrically large objects. In this paper, a rigorous derivation is given as a physical insight of this basis function. Defined on large patches and containing propagating wave phase dependence, this kind of bases exhibits very strong directivity, leading to a highly sparsed impedance matrix. Based on such observation, a matrix sparsification technique and an impedance prediction technique have been developed in this paper. The total memory requirement and computational time could be reduced significantly with methods proposed in this paper. The basic requirements of basis functions, i.e., current continuity and absence of charge accumulation are demonstrated, and the excellent behavior of PE basis functions in wideband applications has been summarized briefly. Several numerical examples have been given to show its good accuracy and high efficiency in solving scattering from electrically large complex objects.
