# COMPARISON OF TWO-DIMENSIONAL CONFORMAL LOCAL RADIATION BOUNDARY CONDITIONS

@inproceedings{Lichtenberg1996COMPARISONOT, title={COMPARISON OF TWO-DIMENSIONAL CONFORMAL LOCAL RADIATION BOUNDARY CONDITIONS}, author={Bernd Lichtenberg and Kevin J. Webb and Douglas B. Meade}, year={1996} }

Numerical solutions for open-region electromagnetic problems based on differential equations require some means of truncating the computational domain. A number of local Radiation Boundary Conditions (RBCs) for general boundary shapes have been proposed during the past decade. Many are generalizations of the Bayliss-Turkel RBC for circular truncation boundaries. This paper reviews several two-dimensional RBCs for general truncation boundaries. The RBCs are evaluated on the basis of their…
