Abstract

In this paper, a guaranteed-convergence method for the accurate and efficient analysis of the electromagnetic scattering by an arbitrarily oriented zero-thickness perfectly electrically conducting (PEC) disk buried in a lossy half-space is presented. An electric field integral equation (EFIE) in the vector Hankel transform domain is obtained by expanding the unknown surface current density in cylindrical harmonics. A convergence of exponential type is achieved by means of Galerkin’s method with expansion functions reconstructing the expected physical behavior of the n-th harmonic at the center and the edge of the disk. The obtained coefficient matrix can be quickly computed since its elements can be reviewed as the sum of single integrals efficiently evaluable by means of an analytical acceleration technique and double integrals of exponentially decaying functions.
