An analysis of scattering from coupled conducting cylinders near the planar interface between two semi-infinite, homogeneous halfspaces of different electromagnetic properties and from partially buried conducting cylinders is presented. The perfectly conducting cylinders of general cross sections are of infinite extent and the excitation is transverse magnetic to the cylinder axes. Coupled integral equations for the unknown current induced on the cylinders are derived and a numerical method for solving them is described. In addition, a simple technique is employed to determine the far-zone scattered field from knowledge of the cylinder current. Data displaying the distribution of the induced current and the scattered field patterns for cylinders of interest are presented and discussed.
