Study on the Composite Electromagnetic Scattering from 3D Conductor Multi-Objects above the Rough Surface
The traditional algorithm for the composite electromagnetic scattering from 3D conductor multi-objects above the rough surface has such weaknesses as slow computation speed and large memory consumption. On the basis of the fast algorithm integrated with the traditional coupling method of moment and physical optics method, this paper uses the multilevel fast multipole method (MLFMA) and fast far-field approximation (FAFFA) to accelerate the multiplication of matrix vector between the object and environment, which greatly improves the computation speed and reduces the memory consumption. This paper adopts the dual Debye sweater permittivity model simulate the real sea surface environment, establishes the coupling MoM-PO model of composite scattering from multi-objects on and above the sea surface, and obtains the composite electromagnetic scattering coefficient in virtue of the interaction between object area and rough surface area calculated by the MLFMA and FAFFA. At the same time, the changes of composite scattering coefficient along with the change of object spacing, size, incident angles, tilt angle, type and sea surface wind speed are analyzed in detail. The computation results show that the hybrid method consisting of the method of moment accelerated by MLFMA and FAFFA and physical optics method brings higher accuracy and computation efficiency (the computation time and memory consumption are 62% and 82% of the method of moment respectively).
