An original method is proposed which associates rigorous 3D finite element methods (FEM) with Floquet modes through FACTOPO multidomain formalism for computing the radar cross section (RCS) of large array antennas. The most original aspect of the method is the fact that the source unit cell is characterized by a generalized scattering matrix (GSM) which does not depend on the plane wave incidence impinging the structure. Consequently, the factorization step of the FEM matrix, which is the main… CONTINUE READING
