Overview

Learn how to quickly solve electromagnetic scattering problems using the Moment Method with this valuable self-study package. The clearly written book provides examples of Moment Method problems, reviews the numerical techniques required to solve them, and demonstrates the use of the moment method in solving scattering from basic shapes, including: wires, two-dimensional strips and contours, and flat plates.

FORTRAN code is included in the appendix as well as on diskette, and can be modified to explore scattering for a variety of shapes. Accompanying software provides "hands-on" experience for improved understanding of how simple and complex shapes scatter waves, and for implementing the techniques described in the book.

Written with the needs of the practicing engineer or student in mind, this unique instructional package emphasizes implementation rather than daunting mathematics, and...

1 Introduces basic RCS terminology and compares thin wire RCS calculations to measured data
1 Illustrates the use of a resistive taper to tailor the RCS pattern from a two-dimensional strip
2 Addresses the numerical difficulties which occur when using the reduced kernel for thin wire scattering

EM and radar managers and engineers, and students who need to understand the essentials of the Moment Method and basic computational electromagnetics will find this unique tutorial tool invaluable. Sixty-six illustrations and 414 equations are included.

A detailed but not mathematically overburdened introduction to using the moment method to solve electromagnetic problems. Taking advantage of the more powerful personal computers now available, both lists and presents on a 3.5" disk, five programs that will run on 486DX-33 or faster machines compiled using FORTRAN. Among the topics are thin-wire scattering, scattering from conductive strips and two-dimensional contours, and a radar cross-section of a flat plate. Annotation c.
