curve

Create curved shape on X-Y plane

Description

Use the curve object to create a curved shape centered on the X-Y plane.

Creation

Description

example

curvedshape = curve creates a curved shape centered on the X-Y plane.

example

curvedshape = curve(Name=Value) sets Properties using one or more name-value arguments. For example, curve(ReferencePoint=[1 1]) creates a curved shape at the reference point [1 1]. Properties not specified retain their default values.

Properties

expand all

Name of the curved shape, specified as a character vector or string scalar.

Example: curvedshape = curve(Name='curvedshape1')

Data Types: char | string

Reference point of the curved shape in Cartesian coordinates, specified as a two-element vector.

Example: curvedshape = curve(ReferencePoint=[1 1])

Data Types: double

Radius of the curved shape, specified as a positive scalar in meters.

Example: curvedshape = curve(Radius=0.0300)

Data Types: double

Width of the curved shape, specified as a positive scalar in meters.

Example: curvedshape = curve(Width=0.0030)

Data Types: double

Start angle and stop angle in degrees, specified as a two-element vector.

Example: curvedshape = curve(ArcAngle=[90 140)

Data Types: double

Create a curved shape with default properties.

curved = curve
curved = 
  curve with properties:

              Name: 'myCurve'
    ReferencePoint: [0 0]
            Radius: 0.0100
             Width: 0.0020
          ArcAngle: [0 180]

View the curved shape.

show(curved)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Create a curved shape with the of 8 m and width of 2 m.

curved = curve(Radius=8,Width=2);

Rotate the shape by 60 degrees.

curved = rotateZ(curved,60)
curved = 
  curve with properties:

              Name: 'myCurve'
    ReferencePoint: [0 0]
            Radius: 8
             Width: 2
          ArcAngle: [0 180]

show(curved)

Mesh the curved shape at a maximum edge length of 1 m.

mesh(curved,MaxEdgeLength=1)
