To fully exploit the directional property of CSBs, a truncated singular value decomposition (TSVD) method is applied to compress the aggregation, translation, and disaggregation matrices of NCSB in this paper.
As has been mentioned previously, the directional property of CSBs can be used to reduce the computational cost in the translation procedure.
In the following, we obtain the aggregation matrix in a slightly different way by further utilizing the directional property of the radiating far field of CSBs.
To take advantage of the directional property of CSBs, TSVD will be applied to compress these matrices in the following sections.
The directional property makes the device active on one side only, and is entirely unique to CivaSheet.
