Abstract : The main purpose of the research was the development of computationally effective and efficient techniques for predicting high frequency scattering. A method is described for combining physical optics with first order diffraction theory and the effectiveness of the resulting program is demonstrated using data for a cone, cone-cylinder and cone-cylinder-flare. Other analytical and experimental investigations were also performed aimed at increasing the accuracy of the underlying theoretical model and some of the possible improvements and extensions of the computer program are indicated.
