Scattering by Two Cylinders


  • G. O. Olaofe


The boundary-value problem of multiple scattering by two equal, parallel, but non-overlapping, circular cylinders is considered. Solutions are derived in the form of infinite sums for the scattering intensities and cross sections, but numerical results are presented only for the extinction and back-scattering cross sections, both of which are treated as functions of the separation distance between the two cylinders. Endfire and broadside illumination are distinguished from each other.
