Abstract:

This report describes a computer program for determining the backscattered fields of a conducting body of revolution composed of sections of cones and cylinders. The target may be closed at one or both ends with circular disks. The target may have as many as 20 sections, and the program can readily be modified to handle a larger number. The backscattered field for E theta or E phi polarization is computed using wedge diffraction theory and geometrical optics. The computed results are in good agreement with experimental measurements for cones, cylinders, double cones, and conically capped cylinders.
