Electromagnetic Coupling through Arbitrary Apertures in Parallel Conducting Planes

By J.-B. Robertson, Edward A. Parker, Benito Sanz-Izquierdo and John C. Batchelor


We propose a numerical methodto solve the problem of coupling through finite, but otherwise arbitrary apertures in perfectly conducting and vanishingly thin parallel planes. The problem is given a generic formulation using the Method of Moments and the Green's function in the region between the two planes is evaluated using Ewald's method. Numerical applications using Glisson's basis functions to solve the problem are demonstrated and compared with previously published results and the output of FDTD software
