Abstract:

The results of an initial investigation of the Singularity Expansion Method representation of the electromagnetic coupling through a rectangular aperture in a perfectly conducting sheet are reported. The problem is formulated in terms of the coupled Hallen-type integral equations for the dual problem of a rectangular plate. The integral equations are converted to a system of linear algebraic equations by way of the method of moments with subsectionally constant expansion functions and collocation testing. Several techniques used in minimizing the execution time of the computations are described. Some difficulties in accurately approximating the singularities of the system of integral equations by the singularities of the algebraic system are discussed. These difficulties arise because the subsectionally constant representation for the current cannot adequately represent the correct edge singularities in the currents on the plate. A set of pole trajectories indicative of the trends in pole location for the plate is reported. A listing of the pertinent computer code is provided.
