An efficient and accurate numerical procedure for the analysis of the electromagnetic scattering and radiation from arbitrarily shaped, composite finite conducting and dielectric bodies is proposed. A set of coupled electric field integral equations involving surface equivalent electric and magnetic currents is used. The coupled integral equations are solved through planar triangular patch modeling and the method of moments. Two separate, mutually orthogonal vector functions for each edge connecting a pair of triangular patches have been developed. Numerical results for disk/cone and cylinder/cone structures are compared with other available data. Limited comparison with experimental data has also been made.
