MFIE-Based Formulation Using Double-Layer Modeling for Perfectly Conducting Objects

2019-01-01
We present resonance-free solutions of scattering problems involving closed conductors using the magnetic field integral equation (MFIE). In the literature, MFIE is often combined with the electric-field integral equation (EFIE) to avoid internal resonances that can significantly contaminate solutions especially when scatterers become electrically large. The resulting combined-field integral equation (CFIE), however, possesses the disadvantages of EFIE, e.g., ill-conditioning for dense discretizations. We show that placing an interacting inner surface inside the given object and enforcing internal fields to be zero can mitigate internal resonances, making MFIE resonance free without employing EFIE. Using an arbitrary inner surface can significantly suppress internal fields; but, as also shown in this contribution, the size of the inner surface, i.e., the distance between inner and outer surfaces, can be critical to obtain accurate results that are comparable to those obtained with the conventional CFIE.

We consider the solution of electromagnetic problems related to microwave applications involving composite geometries with coexisting open and closed conductors. Combined-field integral equation is introduced on the closed parts of the geometry to improve the iterative solutions. It is demonstrated that the convergence rates are significantly increased compared to the conventional formulation with the electric-field integral equation.
Rigorous Solutions of Electromagnetic Problems Involving Hundreds of Millions of Unknowns
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2011-02-01)
Accurate simulations of real-life electromagnetic problems with integral equations require the solution of dense matrix equations involving millions of unknowns. Solutions of these extremely large problems cannot be easily achieved, even when using the most powerful computers with state-of-the-art technology. Hence, many electromagnetic problems in the literature have been solved by resorting to various approximation techniques, without controllable error. In this paper, we present full-wave solutions of sc...

An infinitely smooth parametrical representation with derivatives of all orders is used, resulting into exponentially converging solutions of magnetic field integral equation (MFIE) in 2D either for TM or TE polarized excitations. A version of superformula modified for this purpose has been subject to optimization of its parameters via genetic algorithms to provide smooth parameterization for a desired boundary in two-dimensional problems. The organization of the MFIE kernel and convergence of the solution ...
