Abstract:

A methodology for a fast-executing electromagnetic interference pattern modeling algorithm is given. The general issues pertaining to interference pattern modeling are first discussed. The algorithm is then developed and explained in detail, based upon its genesis in radio frequency antenna gain pattern modeling. Finally applications and results for modeling BRDFs are presented. The technique is shown to provide substantial computational reduction over contemporary modeling methods, while maintaining accuracy and precision. Future efforts are expected to provide additional support utilities for the algorithm to create a CAD-like pattern modeling tool.
