Abstract

A collocated surface impedance boundary condition (SIBC)-finite difference time domain (FDTD) method is developed for conductors coated with lossy dielectric coatings at oblique incidence. The method is based on the collocated electric and magnetic field components on the planar interface between two media, and rational approximation for tangent function of surface impedance formulation is adopted. In contrast to the traditional SIBC-FDTD implementation which is approximated with the magnetic field component on the boundary located at half-cell distance from the interface and half time step earlier in time, the collocation approach is more accurate for both magnitude and phase of reflection coefficient. By the comparison with exact results, the proposed model is numerically verified in the frequency domain for both parallel polarization plane wave and vertical polarization plane wave at varying oblique angles of incidence.
