The aim of this work is to propose a useful method for predicting the scattering by a penetrable wedge when a linearly polarized plane wave is orthogonally incident on it. The wedge is here treated as a junction of two nonmagnetic lossy dielectric slabs. The proposed approach is based on the extension of the Burnside and Burgener's method to determine the geometrical optics response of the structure and on the construction of the corresponding Uniform Asymptotic Physical Optics solution for predicting the diffraction contribution. Planar and right-angle junctions of lossy layers are here considered as canonical structures usually present in automotive radio propagation scenarios.

Abstract

The aim of this work is to propose a useful method for predicting the scattering by a penetrable wedge when a linearly polarized plane wave is orthogonally incident on it. The wedge is here treated as a junction of two nonmagnetic lossy dielectric slabs. The proposed approach is based on the extension of the Burnside and Burgener's method to determine the geometrical optics response of the structure and on the construction of the corresponding Uniform Asymptotic Physical Optics solution for predicting the diffraction contribution. Planar and right-angle junctions of lossy layers are here considered as canonical structures usually present in automotive radio propagation scenarios.
