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 ...

Guler, Sadri; Solak, Birol; Gür, Uğur Meriç; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-09-27)
We present computational analysis of optical chiral metamaterials that consist of helical metallic elements. At optical frequencies, metals are modeled as penetrable objects with plasmonic properties. A rigorous implementation based on boundary element methods and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm is used for efficient and accurate analysis of three-dimensional structures. Numerical results demonstrate interesting polarization-rotating characteristics of such arrays with helical elements, as well as t...
Novel SIE formulations for accurate and stable analysis of near-zero-index materials
KARAOSMANOGLU, BARISCAN; OZMU, UTKU; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2019-07-01)
© 2019 IEEE.We present surface-integral-equation formulations for accurate and stable solutions of electromagnetic problems involving near-zero-index materials with arbitrarily small permittivity and/or permeability values. The formulations are developed for conventional discretizations, while they can be implemented by using interaction routines of existing solvers. Initial results on canonical objects clearly demonstrate the superiority of the developed formulations in comparison to the conventional ones.
On the accuracy of MFIE and CFIE in the solution of large electromagnetic scattering problems
Ergül, Özgür Salih (null; 2006-11-10)
We present the linear-linear (LL) basis functions to improve the accuracy of the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) and the combined-field integral equation (CFIE) for three-dimensional electromagnetic scattering problems involving large scatterers. MFIE and CFIE with the conventional Rao-Wilton-Glisson (RWG) basis functions are significantly inaccurate even for large and smooth geometries, such as a sphere, compared to the solutions by the electric-field integral equation (EFIE). By using the LL funct...
