Abstract

The application of a high-frequency solution for the field doubly diffracted in the far zone from a pair of parallel wedges illuminated by a plane wave is described. It is shown how a spectral extension of the uniform geometrical theory of diffraction (GTD) is used to obtain closed-form expressions for the field that are valid at any incidence and observation aspects. These expressions exhibit the proper discontinuities and singularities so that they can be suitably combined with the other singly diffracted fields to provide a uniformly valid ray description of the scattering in the far zone by an obstacle which is illuminated by a plane wave. They smoothly reduce both to those derived by directly applying the uniform GTD solution for single diffraction augmented by slope diffraction and to those recently obtained for grazing illumination of the edges, in their respective regions of validity. The solutions to the scalar problems are then used to construct a dyadic diffraction coefficient for the doubly diffracted field in the ray-fixed coordinate system. Examples of triangular cylinders are considered, and numerical results are presented.
