A hybrid uniform theory of diffraction-physical optics (UTD-PO) solution for the analysis of the multiple-diffraction of spherical waves caused by an array of obstacles, which have been modeled by different shapes, is hereby presented. The formulation, validated with measurements from technical literature, does not need to incorporate high-order diffraction terms (slope diffraction) thanks to a recursive relation, therefore producing an easier, faster solution-when compared with other methods-that, at the same time, achieves accurate results. Such results can be applied in radiowave propagation analysis when multiple-diffraction over obstacles with quite different shapes has to be considered. © 2009 IEEE.
