Abstract:

A method for calculating the electromagnetic field scattered from a rough, perfectly conducting surface having one-dimensional variation is presented. The calculation proceeds in two steps 1 calculation of the current distribution on the surface via integral equation techniques, and 2 calculation of the scattered fields using these currents as sources. Shadowing and multiple scattering effects are included. Author
