A Class of benchmark problems for transient scattering by metallic targets

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contributionpeer-review


In this paper we discuss a class of time harmonic scattering problems for metallic targets, for which a solution can be obtained via the method of regularisation. The resulting numerical algorithm is efficient, stable and of arbitrarily prescribed accuracy. These problems provide a benchmark for numerical models of transient and ultrawideband scattering and expose the strengths and weaknesses of a numerical method in both time and frequency domains. An illustrative example is given: the benchmarking of a time domain integral equation method.
