Abstract:

The report deals with the computation of radiation and scattering of electromagnetic fields by electrically large convex conducting cylinders. A general computer program is developed for the case of transverse electric fields using the geometrical theory of diffraction. For a check of the computational accuracy, a computer program for a moment solution to the H-field integral equation is also developed. Illustrative computations are made for examples of radiation from a line source of magnetic current in the vicinity of a polygonal cylinder, scattering of plane waves, radiation from slots, and radiation from electric dipoles. Also given are examples of computations for conducting strips, grazing incidence on polygonal cylinders, and scattering from small cylinders. Complete program listings are included, with program descriptions, instructions for using, and sample input-output data.
