hornangle2size

Equivalent flare width and flare height from flare angles

Description

example

[flarewidth,flareheight]= hornangle2size(width,height,flarelength,angleE,angleH) calculates the equivalent flarewidth and flareheight for a rectangular horn antenna from its flare angles, angleE, and angleH.

Calculate the flare width and the flare height of a horn antenna with

  • Width of the waveguide = 0.0229 m

  • Height of the waveguide = 0.0102 m

  • Flare length of the horn = 0.2729 m

  • Flare angle in the E-plane = 12.2442 degrees

  • Flare angle in the H-plane = 14.4712 degrees

width = 0.0229;
height = 0.0102;
flarelength = 0.2729;
angleE = 12.2442;
angleH = 14.4712;
[flarewidth,flareheight] = hornangle2size(width,height,flarelength,...
                           angleE,angleH)
flarewidth = 0.1638
flareheight = 0.1286
