The use of the Kirchoff method for asymptotic solution of a problem of the diffraction of a plane wave on dielectric bodies of revolution
Abstract
Methods for computing a electromagnetic field vector after the passage of a plane wave through the dielectric walls of a surface of revolution are presented. An algorithm of geometric optics is given for a three dimensional problem, and the diffraction field component which emerges due to the acute nose of the cone is taken into account by means of the Kirchhoff method. The calculation results are compared to experimental data.
