Paper Abstract

This paper presents calculations of a new formulation of the 3D Kirchhoff approximation which allows calculation of the scattering of vector waves from 2D rough surfaces containing infinite slopes. Results are presented for scattering from metal surfaces with rectangular surface structures. This type of surface has applications, for example, in remote sensing and in testing or imaging of printed circuits. Some preliminary calculations for rectangular-shaped grooves in a plane are presented for the 2D surface method.
