Abstract

Geometrical and physical optics techniques, supplemented by their respective extensions, i.e., geometrical and physical diffraction, are applied to the problem of finite cylindrically curved plates. Nurnerical calculations of the radar backscattering cross sections were made, and a graphical comparison of these methods with experimental results is made. Keller's and Ufimtsev's theories are discussed and compared as they apply to this problem.
