Multiple scattering by two conducting circular cylinders
Abstract
The approximate method of Zitron and Karp (1961), the approximate method of Karp and Russek (1956), and an exactsolution iterative method are used to evaluate multiple scattering by two parallel infinitely long conducting circular cylinders upon which an electromagnetic plane wave of Epolarization is incident at a given angle. Numerical results for the total scattering cross section reveal that the method of Zitron and Karp yields very precise results even for rather large ka and small kd, where a and d are the radius of the cylinder and the separation between the cylinders, respectively. This method promises to be a useful tool in treating multiple scattering problems.
