Abstract

A hybrid method, combining analytic Kirchhoff approximation (KA) and numerical method of moment (MoM), is developed to solve the 2D scattering problem of a dielectric target with arbitrary cross section above a moderate perfect electric conductor (PEC) rough surface under TM-polarized tapered wave incidence. Consider the target as the MoM region and the rough surface as the KA region, the induced current on the rough surface is obtained through the KA method, which depends on the incident tapered wave and the field illuminating by current distribution on the target, leaving only unknowns on the target region. In order to reduce the computational costs further, the rough surface is truncated to speed up computation of the scattering contribution from the rough surface to the target. Compared with the conventional MoM, the hybrid method is very efficient to solve the composite scattering problem of target above rough surface, especially for long underlying rough surface. Simulation results validate the effectiveness and accuracy of the hybrid method.
