Analysis of Horn Radiation Pattern Using UTD Edge and Corner Diffraction

Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 17, 87-99, 2011
Abstract
Finite edge geometrical theory of diffraction (FEGTD) approach is a new and latest improvement in GTD technique. This FEGTD technique is applied to the H-plane and E-plane horn radiation problems with spherical source excitation. The horn patterns obtained with the FEGTD approach are found to be in good agreement with measured results.
