RCS of a Metallic Sphere Using the Boundary Element Method (Wave Optics)

Application ID: 110491

This model illustrates the process of evaluating the radar cross section (RCS) of a metallic sphere through the utilization of the boundary element method (BEM). By taking advantage of a vertical symmetry plane that is parallel to the polarization of an incident background field, the model reduces computational expenses. The computed RCS values are compared with analytical values within the Mie RCS region.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
