Abstract:

This thesis deals with electromagnetic scattering from two concentric finite length cylinders. The scattering bodies are assumed to be perfect electric conductors and the incident field is assumed to be a plane wave whose magnetic field is transverse to the longitudinal axis of the scatterers. Electromagnetic field equations are derived in terms of vector potentials. Integral equations are developed for the surface currents induced on the cylinders. A numerical solution is formulated in terms of the method of moments for the unknown surface currents and the components of the scattered electric field. Results are presented for scatterers of different dimensions. Comparisons are made between scattering from a finite hollow cylinder and scattering from two concentric finite cylinders. Author
