Summary:
This thesis is concerned with adapting a sequential code that calculates the Radar Cross Section (RCS) of an open-ended rectangular waveguide cavity to a massively parallel computational platform. The primary motivation for doing this is to obtain wideband data over a large range of incident angles in order to generate a two-dimensional radar cross section image. Images generated from measured and computed data will be compared to evaluate program performance. The computer used in this implementation is a MasPar MP-1 single instruction, multiple data massively parallel computer consisting of 4,096 processors arranged in a two-dimensional mesh. The algorithm uses the mode matching method of analysis to match fields over the cavity aperture to obtain an expression for the scattered far field.
