Electromagnetic scattering analysis and design of sandwich type radomes

Şerefoğlu, Mehmet Murat
In this thesis work, importance of radome structures for antenna systems is emphasized. Structural and electromagnetic requirements of various types of radome structures are analyzed and specific properties are given. Electromagnetic scattering analysis of sandwich type radome seams has been done. Total antenna system far electromagnetic field expression, which is the combination of original antenna far electromagnetic field and the scattered electromagnetic field of the framework of the sandwich radome structure has been found and simulated. To enhance electromagnetic transparency of sandwich type radomes two sandwich radome design methods are proposed which are expressed as Geometrical Randomization and Tuning the Seams. Electromagnetic scattering level minimizations advanced by these design methods are presented with related simulations.
