Abstract

The field on the surface of a structure having nonseparable geometry may be expanded in a set of eigenfunctions suitable for that particular geometry. The eigenfunctions are computed numerically using the boundary elements method to compute a matrix that relates the field on the surface of the structure to its normal derivative at vanishing frequency and diagonalizing the matrix. The field on the surface of a finite cylinder with hemisphical end-caps is expanded in such a set of eigenfunctions for both a simple cylinder and a cylinder containing frames. Results for the framed cylinder is compared to Fourier decomposition of the field on the cylindrical portion of the structure.
