Computing the Radar Cross Section of a Perfectly Conducting Sphere

Application ID: 10332

A classic benchmark problem in computational electromagnetics is to solve for the radar cross section (RCS) of a sphere in free space illuminated by a plane wave. This model solves for the RCS of a metallic sphere that has a very high conductivity, which can be treated as a material with infinite conductivity. Results are compare to the analytic solution, and agreement is shown.

This model is included as an example in the following products:
