We shall consider the problem of determining the scattered far-wave field produced when a plane E-polarized wave is incident on an imperfectly conducting rectangular cylinder. On the basis of the uniform asymptotic solution for the problem of the diffraction of a plane wave by a right-angled impedance wedge, in conjunction with Keller’s method and multiple diffraction, a high-frequency far-field solution to the problem is given for two edge diffractions.
