Short-pulse scattering from buried wires and bodies of revolution [ground penetrating radar]


Journal Article (Academic article)

The method of moments is used to analyze short-pulse plane-wave scattering from perfectly conducting thin wires and bodies of revolution buried in a lossy, dispersive half space. The analysis is performed in the frequency domain, with the time-domain fields synthesized via the Fourier transform. To make this analysis efficient the method of complex images is used to compute the frequency-dependent components of the half-space dyadic Green's function. Results are presented for short-pulse scattering from buried wires, spheres and cylinders, using measured frequency-dependent soil parameters (permittivity and conductivity) and the phenomenology associated with this scattering is investigated in detail
