A Non-iterative Domain Decomposition Method for Finite Element Analysis of 3D Electromagnetic Scattering Problems

Ozgun, Ozlem
Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa
In this paper, we generalize this algorithm to 3D scattering problems, and we demonstrate that the algorithm is actually non-iterative in problems involving smooth convex geometries (such as sphere, cube, missile, cone, plate, etc.) and some special geometries (such as inlet). The most distinguished feature of the algorithm is the utilization of the locally-conformal perfectly matched layer (PML) method along the boundaries of the subdomains. In this algorithm, the original computational domain is partitioned into some number of overlapping subdomains, and then the problem in each subdomain is solved only once by appropriately defined PML regions attached to each subdomain. We demonstrate the performance of the algorithm in some 3D scattering problems.


On the Poisson sum formula for analysis of EM radiation/scattering from large finite arrays
Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Chou, HT (1998-01-01)
A useful procedure, that has been described previously in the literature, employs the Poisson sum formula to represent the solution to the fields of a three-dimensional (3D) large periodically spaced finite planar array problem configuration as a convolution of the infinite planar periodic array solution and the Fourier transform of the equivalent aperture distribution over the finite array. It is shown here that the Poisson sum formula utilized by Felsen and Carin (see J. Opt. Soc. Am. A, vol.11, no.4, p.1...
Investigation of nonplanar perfectly matched absorbers for finite-element mesh truncation
Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (1997-03-01)
In this paper, we present a detailed theoretical and numerical investigation of the perfectly matched layer (PML) concept as applied to the problem of mesh truncation in the finite-element method (FEM), We show that it is possible to extend the Cartesian PML concepts involving half-spaces to cylindrical and spherical geometries appropriate for closed boundaries in two and three dimensions by defining lossy anisotropic layers in the relevant coordinate systems, By using the method of separation of variables,...
Modified Superformula Contours Optimized via Genetic Algorithms for Exponentially Converging 2D Solutions of MFIE
Guler, Sadri; Onol, Can; Ergül, Özgür Salih; Sever, Emrah; Dikmen, Fatih; Tuchkin, Yury A. (2017-05-25)
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 ...
Implementation of coordinate transformations in periodic finite-element method for modeling rough surface scattering problems
ÖZGÜN, ÖZLEM; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2016-05-01)
The coordinate transformation technique (with its current name of transformation electromagnetics) is applied to the finite-element method (FEM) with periodic boundary conditions for efficient Monte Carlo simulation of one-dimensional random rough surface scattering problems. In a unit cell of periodic structure, two coordinate transformations are used, one of which is a real transformation designed to model the rough surface with flat surface, and the other is a complex transformation used to design a perf...
Combining perturbation theory and transformation electromagnetics for finite element solution of Helmholtz-type scattering problems
Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2014-10-01)
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...
