Solution of a class of imperfect wedge problems for skew incidence


  • Thomas B. A. Senior


A method is described for solving the problem of a plane electromagnetic wave at nonnormal (skew) incidence on a wedge with one face imperfectly conducting and the other metallic. The method is based on a modified statement of the impedance boundary condition used in conjunction with Maliuzhinets' technique, and is applicable to a wedge whose open angle is mπ/2 with m = 1, 2, 3 or 4. For each wedge angle the general form of the solution is developed, and detailed results are presented for a right-angled
