Abstract

A rigorous semi-analytical solution is presented for electromagnetic scattering from an array of circular cylinders due to an obliquely incident plane wave. The cylinders are illuminated by either TMz or TEz incident plane wave. The solution is based on the application of the boundary conditions on the surface of each cylinder in terms of the local coordinate system of each individual cylinder. The principle of equal volume model is used to represent cylindrical cross-sections by an array of circular cylinders for both dielectric and conductor cases in order to proof the validity of the presented technique.
