Two dimensional modeling of electromagnetic radiation and scattering by spectral element method

Mahariq, İbrahim
In this thesis, the spectral element method is utilized in numerical modeling of two-dimensional, frequency-domain electromagnetic scattering and radiation problems. We perform domain truncation by the well-known perfectly matched layer (PML) and provide the corresponding formulation. The attenuation factor associated with the PML formulation is optimized so that the best accuracy is achieved for a wide range of Gauss- Legendre -Lobatto grids per wavelength. The optimality of the provided attenuation factor is verified by several numerical demonstrations and by comparing the numerical solutions with those obtained under the absence of PML in problems whose analytical solutions are available. Further, these values of attenuation are applied to solve electromagnetic scattering by dielectric micro cylinders (photonic nanojets). Some interesting cases that contribute to whispering gallery modes are reported where finite-difference time-domain method is found to fail in numerical modeling of such cases. In addition, the resulting linear system of equations is also approached iteratively and a comparison among successive over relaxation, Jacobi and incomplete LU preconditioners is presented.


An efficient hybrid UTD-MoM analysis of radiation/scattering from large truncated periodic arrays
Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Chou, HT (1998-01-01)
A hybrid method is described which combines a previously developed UTD ray analysis for periodic structures with the conventional numerical MoM approach to efficiently analyze the radiation and scattering from electrically large finite arrays. The UTD, which constitutes an asymptotic high frequency ray solution, is extended to describe the fields of an entire large planar array (consisting of a very large number of elements) in terms of just a few rays which an relatively independent of the physical size of...
A Numerical Model for Investigating the Effect of Rough Surface Parameters on Radar Cross Section Statistics
Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2017-07-14)
Electromagnetic scattering from rough surfaces is modeled by combining the periodic finite element method and the transformation electromagnetics approach. The behavior of the radar cross section (RCS) at both specular and backscattering directions is analyzed as a function of rms height and correlation length with the help of Monte Carlo simulations. The concept of backscattering enhancement is illustrated, and some conclusions are drawn about the RCS statistics.
Multiscale Modeling of Thin-Wire Coupling Problems Using Hybridization of Finite Element and Dipole Moment Methods and GPU Acceleration
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Mittra, Raj; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2020-01-01)
In this article, a hybrid numerical method, called finite element method (FEM) + dipole moment (DM), is presented for efficient solution of multiscale electromagnetic radiation and scattering problems that involve structures with fine features, such as thin-wire antennas or objects. In this method, the FEM is hybridized with the DM approach to help ease certain computational burdens, such as mesh refinement, ill-conditioning, memory overload, and long computation times, when solving multiscale problems with...
Accurate solutions of scattering problems involving low-contrast dielectric objects with surface integral equations
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2007-11-16)
We present the stabilization of the surface integral equationsfor accurate solutions of scattering problems involvinglow-contrast dielectric objects. Unlike volume formulations,conventional surface formulations fail to provide accurateresults for the scatteredfields when the contrast of theobject is small. Therefore, surface formulations are requiredto be stabilized by extracting the nonradiating parts of theequivalent currents. In addition to previous strategies forthe stabilization, we introduce a n...
Numerical Modeling of Electromagnetic Scattering from Periodic Structures by Transformation Electromagnetics
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2016-09-22)
The transformation electromagnetics is applied to the modeling of electromagnetic scattering from periodic structures in conjunction with the finite element method with periodic boundary conditions. In a unit cell of periodic structure, a uniform mesh is used over a flat surface and the arbitrary periodic surface is modeled by a coordinate transformation. The major advantage of this approach is that arbitrary geometries can be handled by using a single and simple mesh. Therefore, repeated computations (such...
