A Framework for Simulation of Multiple Elastic Scattering in Two Dimensions
Consider the elastic scattering of a time-harmonic wave by multiple well-separated rigid particles with smooth boundaries in two dimensions. Instead of using the complex Green's tensor of the elast...
The Gradient of Total Multiple Scattering Cross-Section and Its Application to Acoustic Cloaking
We derive a formula for the gradients of the total scattering cross-section (TSCS) with respect to positions of a set of cylindrical scatterers. The analytic form enhances modeling capability when ...
Low-Frequency Scattering by a Semi-Infinite Lattice of Cylinders
Acoustic wave scattering by a semi-innite lattice of sound-soft cylinders is considered in the long-wave limit. The problem is rst reduced an innite linear system of algebraic equations, and this in
Approximation by multipoles of the multiple acoustic scattering by small obstacles and application to the Foldy theory of isotropic scattering.
The asymptotic analysis, carried out in this paper, for the problem of a multiple scattering of a time-harmonic wave by obstacles whose size is small as compared with the wavelength establishes that
Multiple scattering by a collection of randomly located obstacles Part II: Numerical implementation - coherent fields
A numerical implementation of a rigorous theory to analyze scattering by randomly located obstacles is presented. In general, the obstacles can be of quite arbitrary shape, but, in this first
An extended wide-spacing approximation for two-dimensional water-wave problems in infinite depth
This paper considers the wide-spacing approximation when applied to twodimensional linear problems involving the scattering and radiation of water waves by structures in a fluid of infinite depth.
Diffraction of acoustic waves by a wedge of point scatterers
An effective and accurate iterative numerical procedure is developed to solve the problem of diffraction by a wedge consisting of two semi-infinite periodic arrays of point scatterers using the discrete Wiener–Hopf technique.
Simulation of acoustic scattering by multiple obstacles in three dimensions
We present an algorithm for simulating acoustic scattering by multiple three dimensional sound-hard, sound-soft, or absorbing impenetrable particles. We demonstrate the high order accuracy of the


Many-body wave scattering by small bodies
Scattering problem by several bodies, small in comparison with the wavelength, is reduced to linear algebraic systems of equations, in contrast to the usual reduction to some integral equations.
On the scattering of spherical waves by a cylindrical object
SummaryThe connection between plane wave and spherical wave scattering from an infinitely cylindrical object is investigated. If the distance of the source and the observer from the axis of the
Water wave scattering by finite arrays of circular structures
The scattering of small amplitude water waves by a finite array of locally axisymmetric structures is considered. Regions of varying quiescent depth are included and their axisymmetric nature,

Plane-wave scattering by a set of perfectly conducting circular cylinders in the presence of a plane surface
A general approach is presented for treating the two-dimensional scattering of a plane wave by an arbitrary configuration of perfectly conducting circular cylinders in front of a plane surface with
Influence of correlations between scatterers on the attenuation of the coherent wave in a random medium.
Experimental measurements of the coherent wave transmission for ultrasonic waves propagating in water through a random set of scatterers (metallic rods) show that the mean-free path deviates from the classical first-order approximation due to the existence of correlations between scatterer.
Piles as Barriers for Elastic Waves
A theoretical study is presented on the usefulness of a row of rigid piles as an isolating barrier for elastic waves. The problem is formulated as one of multiple scattering and diffraction. A set of
Electromagnetic Scattering by Multiple Perfectly Conducting Arbitrary Polygonal Cylinders
We analyze the scattering by multiple perfectly conducting cylinders with arbitrary polygonal cross-section. The proposed method is very efficient as few expansion functions are needed in a Galerkin
