A hybrid uniform geometrical theory of diffraction (UTD)-moment method (MOM) approach is introduced to provide an efficient analysis of the electromagnetic radiation/scattering from electrically large, finite, planar periodic arrays. This study is motivated by the fact that conventional numerical methods become rapidly inefficient and even intractable for the analysis of electrically large arrays containing many antenna or frequency-selective surface (FSS) elements. In the present hybrid UTD-MOM approach, the number of unknowns to be solved is drastically reduced as compared to that which is required in the conventional MOM approach. This substantial reduction in the MOM unknowns is essentially made possible by introducing relatively few, special ray-type (or UTD) basis functions to efficiently describe the unknown array currents. The utility of the present hybrid approach is demonstrated here for the simple case of a large rectangular phased array of short and thin metallic dipoles in air, which are excited with a uniform amplitude and linear phase distribution. Some numerical results are presented to illustrate the efficiency and accuracy of this hybrid method.


A subgrid stabilization finite element method for incompressible magnetohydrodynamics
Belenli, Mine A.; Kaya Merdan, Songül; Rebholz, Leo G.; Wilson, Nicholas E. (2013-07-01)
This paper studies a numerical scheme for approximating solutions of incompressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations that uses eddy viscosity stabilization only on the small scales of the fluid flow. This stabilization scheme for MHD equations uses a Galerkin finite element spatial discretization with Scott-Vogelius mixed finite elements and semi-implicit backward Euler temporal discretization. We prove its unconditional stability and prove how the coarse mesh can be chosen so that optimal convergence ca...
A novel CEM technique for modeling electromagnetic scattering from metasurfaces
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Mittra, Raj; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Wiley, 2020-03-01)
This paper presents a novel computational electromagnetics (CEM) technique, which hybridizes the periodic finite element method (FEM) with the method of moments (MoM), for efficient numerical modeling of electromagnetic scattering from metasurfaces consisting of truncated periodic or locally varying quasi-periodic array of structures. Based on the quasi-periodic nature of metasurfaces, the periodic FEM is employed to generate high-level macro basis functions (MBFs). Following that, a reduced MoM matrix is f...
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.

In this paper, we propose a fast algorithm for the reconstruction of the conductivity perturbation DELTAsigma about a known conductivity variation sigma0. The method is based on the minimization of a quadratic functional subject to linear constraints, where the existence of a unique solution is guaranteed. The algorithm developed for this purpose is iterative and each iteration is composed of a simple matrix multiplication. The validity of this method is illustrated with several examples.
A finite element variational multiscale method for the Navier-Stokes equations
Volker, John; Kaya Merdan, Songül (Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2005-01-01)
This paper presents a variational multiscale method (VMS) for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations which is defined by a large scale space L-H for the velocity deformation tensor and a turbulent viscosity nu(T). The connection of this method to the standard formulation of a VMS is explained. The conditions on L-H under which the VMS can be implemented easily and efficiently into an existing finite element code for solving the Navier - Stokes equations are studied. Numerical tests with the Smagorinsky ...
