A new differential formulation of acoustic scattering by rotationally symmetrical penetrable scatterers

Günalp, Nilgün
A new differential formulation is presented for acoustic wave scattering from rotationally symmetric penetrable bodies. The numerical implementation of this formulation is fairly simple, and comprises basically the construction of the state-transition matrix of a system of differential equations and the solution of a matrix equation. The validity and the accuracy of the numerical scheme are tested considering objects of known scattering behavior. Other numerical applications are also presented to demonstrate the generality of the method in handling scatterers of arbitrary shapes and material compositions.


On the accuracy and efficiency of surface formula tions in fast analysis of plasmonic structures via MLFMA
Karaosmanoglu, Barıscan; Yılmaz, Akıf; Ergül, Özgür Salih (null; 2016-08-11)
We consider the accuracy and efficiency of surface integral equations, when they are used to formulate electromagnetic problems involving plasmonic objects at optical frequencies. Investigations on the iterative solutions of scattering problems with the multilevel fast multipole algorithm show that the conventional formulations, especially the state-of-the-art integral equations, can significantly be inaccurate, in contrast to their performances for ordinary dielectrics. The varying performances of the form...
Evaluation of Hypersingular Integrals on Curvilinear Surface Elements
Selcuk, Gokhun; Koç, Seyit Sencer (2016-04-15)
In this study finite part integrals are utilized for evaluation of hypersingular and nearly-hypersingular surface integrals on curvilinear elements. These integrals are related to the second derivative of the free space Green' function and arise in the solution of electric field integral equation (EFIE) via locally corrected Nystriim (LCN) method. The curvilinear elements are represented by the Taylor series expansion of the surface function around the observation point. The hypersingular integral, defined ...
Accurate and Efficient Solutions of Densely Discretized Closed Conductors Using a Combined Potential-Field Formulation
Karaova, Gokhan; Eris, Ozgur; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2021-01-01)
We present an accurate, efficient, and stable formulation for rigorous analyses of electromagnetic problems involving closed conductors. The formulation, namely the combined potential-field formulation (CPFF), is constructed from the conventional potential integral equations and the magnetic-field integral equation, together with an additional integral equation using the boundary condition for the normal component of the magnetic vector potential. Being both low-frequency-stable and resonance-free, CPFF is ...
Numerical solution of nonlinear reaction-diffusion and wave equations
Meral, Gülnihal; Tezer, Münevver; Department of Mathematics (2009)
In this thesis, the two-dimensional initial and boundary value problems (IBVPs) and the one-dimensional Cauchy problems defined by the nonlinear reaction- diffusion and wave equations are numerically solved. The dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) is used to discretize the IBVPs defined by single and system of nonlinear reaction-diffusion equations and nonlinear wave equation, spatially. The advantage of DRBEM for the exterior regions is made use of for the latter problem. The differential quad...
Application of nyström method for the solution of time domain electric field integral equation
Selçuk, Gökhun; Koç, Seyit Sencer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Solution of surface scattering problems with electric field integral equation (EFIE) requires careful treatment of singularities introduced by the 3D dyadic Green’s function when source and observation points are close to each other or coincide. One may either utilize the divergence conforming basis and testing functions to reduce the order of singularity or directly deal with singularities via analytical singularity extraction methods. The latter method is a not a commonly used one although it enables use ...
