© 2021 IEEE.In this study, a novel approach is presented for efficient evaluation of Sommerfeld integrals arising in spatial-domain Green's functions in planar multilayered media. This approach allows us to tackle the difficulties encountered during the integration of the Sommerfeld integrals, which exhibit highly oscillatory and slowly decaying nature occurring especially at very high frequencies, e.g., at millimeter waves, that are finding increasing use in applications such as 5G and beyond. The oscillatory behavior of the integrand is modeled through an efficient interpolation and extrapolation scheme with a few samples needed to represent the integrand. Since the integrand is represented with a few exponentials, analytical integration can be used to speed up the process. The proposed approach is tested on different Green's functions and a good agreement is obtained.

Efficient Computation of Green's Functions for Multilayer Media in the Context of 5G Applications
Mittra, Raj; Özgün, Özlem; Li, Chao; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2021-03-22)
This paper presents a novel method for effective computation of Sommerfeld integrals which arise in problems involving antennas or scatterers embedded in planar multilayered media. Sommerfeld integrals that need to be computed in the evaluation of spatial-domain Green's functions are often highly oscillatory and slowly decaying. For this reason, standard numerical integration methods are not efficient for such integrals, especially at millimeter waves. The main motivation of the proposed method is to comput...

Alatan, Lale; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (1999-04-01)
Derivation of the closed-form Green's functions and analytical evaluation of the method of moments (MOM) matrix entries have improved the computational efficiency of the significantly in the analysis of printed geometries. With this background in mind, an extension of this efficient numerical technique is to incorporate an optimization algorithm and to assess its potential as a computer-aided design (CAD) tool. Therefore, we have employed the Gradient search and Genetic algorithms, in conjunction with the e...
Numerically efficient analysis of slot-lines in multilayer media using closed form Green's functions
Dural Ünver, Mevlüde Gülbin; Aksun, MI (1996-05-16)
A numerically efficient technique for the analysis of slot-line geometries in multilayer media is presented using closed-form Green's functions in the spatial domain employed in conjunction with the Method of Moments (MoM). The computed equivalent magnetic current distribution on the slot is used to determine the power radiated by the slot and the input impedance. In power calculations, the spatial domain Green's functions are approximated as a power series of radial distance, and the integrals involving th...

Sahin, Mehmet Akif; ÇETİN, BARBAROS; Özer, Mehmet Bülent (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-12-16)
In the present study, a 3D device-level numerical model is implemented via finite element method to assess the effects of design and operating parameters on the separation performance of a microscale acoustofluidic device. Elastodynamic equations together with electromechanical coupling at the piezoelectric actuators for the stress field within the solid parts, Helmholtz equation for the acoustic field within fluid, and Navier-Stokes equations for the fluid flow are coupled for the simulations. Once the zer...
A Novel Approach for the Efficient Computation of 1-D and 2-D Summations
Karabulut, E. Pinar; ERTÜRK, VAKUR BEHÇET; Alatan, Lale; Karan, S.; Alisan, Burak; Aksun, M. I. (2016-03-01)
A novel computational method is proposed to evaluate 1-D and 2-D summations and integrals which are relatively difficult to compute numerically. The method is based on applying a subspace algorithm to the samples of partial sums and approximating them in terms of complex exponentials. For a convergent summation, the residue of the exponential term with zero complex pole of this approximation corresponds to the result of the summation. Since the procedure requires the evaluation of relatively small number of...
