Scattering from a one-dimensional random rough surface with Neumann boundary conditions is analyzed using a finite element formulation. Results are in excellent agreement with tapered-wave integral-equation solutions after averaging over realizations. Finite element advantages in CPU time, memory storage, and energy conservation tests are illustrated.
