An efficient hybrid UTD-MoM analysis of radiation/scattering from large truncated periodic arrays

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 the truncated array for any given electrical spacing between the array elements. Thus, the few UTD rays, which emanate from specific interior and boundary (e.g. edge and corner) points of the truncated array, describe the entire array behavior very efficiently in a composite fashion; this is in contrast to the conventional rigorous element by element approach based on the MoM for including the mutual coupling in finite arrays that can become intractable for large arrays. The MoM is included in the present UTD approach to refine the assumed initial approximation for the field distribution over the array in this analysis. This numerical MoM based computation is typically confined only to the neighbourhood of the edge elements of the entire array thereby making these computations and hence the present hybrid method very efficient.


A Novel Numerical Technique for Analyzing Metasurfaces
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Mittra, Raj; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2019-12-31)
This work presents a novel technique for efficient numerical modeling of electromagnetic scattering from metasurfaces comprising of truncated periodic or locally-varying quasi-periodic surfaces. The proposed technique hybridizes the periodic Finite Element Method (FEM) with the Method of Moments (MoM) to develop an algorithm far more efficient than conventional numerical methods for electromagnetic scattering from arbitrary objects. The key feature of the proposed algorithm is that it takes advantage of the...
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.
Two dimensional modeling of electromagnetic radiation and scattering by spectral element method
Mahariq, İbrahim; Tarman, Işık Hakan; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Engineering Sciences (2014)
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...
A Novel Approach for the Efficient Computation of 1-D and 2-D Summations
Karabulut, E. Pinar; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET; Alatan, Lale; Karan, S.; Alisan, Burak; Aksun, M. I. (2016-03-01)
A novel computational method is proposed to evaluate 1-D and 2-D summations and integrals which are relatively difficult to compute numerically. The method is based on applying a subspace algorithm to the samples of partial sums and approximating them in terms of complex exponentials. For a convergent summation, the residue of the exponential term with zero complex pole of this approximation corresponds to the result of the summation. Since the procedure requires the evaluation of relatively small number of...
A multiscale analytical correction technique for two-dimensional thermal models of AlGaN/GaN HEMTs
Azarifar, Mohammad; Donmezer, Nazli (2017-07-01)
Two-dimensional approaches are widely used in the numerical thermal models of AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) to reduce the high computational cost of the three-dimensional approaches. The aforementioned simplified models predict inaccurate device temperatures with significant overestimation of the thermal resistance. In order to take advantage of the computational efficiency of the two-dimensional models, a correction procedure is necessary for the accurate representation of the actual...
