Abstract

The hybrid method for computing scattering from large objects with small cracks and cavities on their surfaces is extended to compute the radiation pattern of a microstrip patch antenna in a complex geometry. Numerical results show the external geometry, including edge diffraction effects, has a dominant effect on the radiation pattern of the patch antenna. Comparison of the numerical results to measured data shows good agreement.
