The Attenuation of Electromagnetic Waves by Multiple Knife-Edge Diffraction
Lewis E. Vogler
Abstract: Starting from work by Furutsu, a multiple knife-edge attenuation function is derived. A series representation of the function is developed which is amenable to computer implementation. Comparisons of computer-generated numerical values with known results are presented and discussed.
Keywords: microwave propagation; attenuation calculations; multiple knife-edge diffraction
