This paper presents a computational model that utilizes transformation-based metamaterials to enhance the performance of numerical modeling methods for achieving the statistical characterization of two-dimensional electromagnetic scattering from objects on or above one-dimensional rough sea surfaces. Monte Carlo simulation of the rough surface scattering problem by means of differential equation-based finite methods (such as finite element or finite difference methods) usually places a heavy burden on computational resources because at each realization of the Monte Carlo technique, a mesh must be generated anew for each surface realization. The main purpose of the proposed approach in this paper is to create a single mesh, without repeating mesh generation at each step, by introducing a transformation medium above the rough surface in the computational domain of the finite methods. Material parameters of the medium are obtained by the coordinate transformation technique, which is based on the form-invariance property of Maxwell's equations. At each realization, only the material parameters are modified with respect to the geometry of surface without changing the mesh. In this manner, a great reduction in CPU time is achieved. The proposed technique is analyzed and validated via various finite element simulations.

A numerical method is proposed for efficient solution of scattering from objects with weakly perturbed surfaces by combining the perturbation theory, transformation electro-magnetics and the finite element method. A transformation medium layer is designed over the smooth surface, and the material parameters of the medium are determined by means of a coordinate transformation that maps the smooth surface to the perturbed surface. The perturbed fields within the domain are computed by employing the material p...

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.
