High-frequency analysis of the efficiency of a local approximate DtN2 boundary condition for prolate spheroidal-shaped boundaries
MetadataShow full item record
The performance of the second-order local approximate DtN boundary condition suggested in  is investigated analytically when employed for solving high-frequency exterior Helmholtz problems with elongated scatterers. This study is performed using a domain-based formulation and assuming the scatterer and the exterior artificial boundary to be prolate spheroid. The analysis proves that, in the high-frequency regime, the reflected waves at the artificial boundary decay faster than 1/(ka)15/8, where k is the wavenumber and a is the semi-major axis of this boundary. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the accuracy and the efficiency of the proposed absorbing boundary condition, and to provide guidelines for satisfactory performance. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
