Abstract

A generalization of the FD-TD (finite-difference time-domain) method, the contour path FD-TD method, is applied to model radiation by horn antennas. The contour path FD-TD method takes into account the nonrectangular antenna surface by distorting the contours near and on the flared surface of the horn antenna. The remaining cells away from the flared parts retain their basic cubic form. In the present work, both the staircase and contour path FD-TD approaches are used to compute and compare radiation patterns from E-plane, H-plane, and pyramidal horn antennas.
