A formulation is developed to treat radiation from structures consisting of conducting and/or dielectric bodies of revolution (BOR) in the presence of multiple arbitrary shaped three-dimensional objects. A set of integral equations is developed on the surfaces of the combined structure and the resulting integro-differential equations are solved using the method of moments. On the BOR, harmonic entire domain expansion functions are used for the circumferential dependence, while overlapping sub-domain functions are used to model axial curvature. The arbitrary shaped portions of the structure are modeled using triangular surface patch basis functions. The resulting matrix has a partial block diagonal nature which provides a more economical solution for structures which have some rotational symmetry. The accuracy of the BOR and arbitrary surface formulation is verified using the self-consistency method and measured data.
