Test of accuracy of the generalized boundary conditions in the scattering by thin dielectric strips
The two-dimensional (2D) scattering of the E and H-polarized plane electromagnetic waves by a free-standing thinner than the wavelength dielectric strip is considered numerically. Two methods are compared: singular integral equations (SIE) on the strip median line obtained from the generalized boundary conditions for a thin dielectric layer and Muller boundary integral equations (BIE) for arbitrarily thick strip. The comparison shows the domain of acceptable accuracy of approximate model derived for thin dielectric strips. © 2014 IEEE.
