Abstract

A hybrid method for the analysis of the interaction between circular corrugated horns and conducting structures usually present in their operative environment is proposed. The method is based on the application of a particular formulation of the equivalence principle that subdivides the original problem into an exterior and an interior one. The former is formulated by using a moment method based on a Combined Field Integral Equation (CFIE), the latter by employing the Mode Matching technique. The Green's function in the kernel of the CFIE for the formulation of the exterior problem is modified to take into account the presence of conducting structures placed
