An open surface integral formulation for electromagnetic scattering by material plates
Abstract
Using the surface equivalence theorem, four coupled integral equations are developed for electromagnetic scattering by a thin material plate. Using symmetry properties, it is shown that these equations can be written as open surface integral equations. Surface impedance relationships are obtained and used to eliminate two of the four integral equations. The remaining two equations are solved using the method of moments (MM). Numerical results for penetrable and impenetrable material plates are in reasonable agreement with measurements.
