A detailed study on the accuracy and reflection behavior of nonreflection boundary conditions is presented. To this end, a selection of five distinct nonreflecting boundary conditions is evaluated and the mechanisms which dominate the reflection properties of boundary conditions are identified based on a rigorous quantification of reflection levels. It is shown that the reflection behavior is significantly affected by the incident angle. The relation between the boundary condition effectiveness and the incident angle is investigated and the reflection rates as a function of the incident angle are quantified. Furthermore, the obtained results are used to predict the reflections from boundary conditions in general applications. It is shown that these predictions are reliable for different test cases.
