Abstract

Plane wave diffraction by a thick strip located on an infinite ground plane is studied in the case where the vertical walls of the thick strip are characterized by the same surface impedances. The diffraction problem is formulated into a modified Wiener-Hopf equation of the third kind and then solved approximately. The solution contains two infinite sets of constants satisfying two infinite systems of linear algebraic equations. Numerical solutions of these systems are obtained for various values of the step impedance, the step height and the strip width whereby is studied the effects of these parameters on the diffraction phenomenon.
