Calculate pitch for specified corrugations

Since R2020b



Pitch = numCorrugationsToPitch(antenna,corrugations) returns the pitch value for the specified number of corrugations. You can calculate the pitch for rectangular or conical corrugated horn antennas.


collapse all

Calculate the pitch for a default corrugated horn antenna with 6 corrugations.

Pitch = numCorrugationsToPitch(hornCorrugated,6)
Pitch = 0.0045

Calculate the pitch for a default conical corrugated horn antenna with 8 corrugations.

Pitch = numCorrugationsToPitch(hornConicalCorrugated,8)
Pitch = 0.0107

Input Arguments

collapse all

Corrugated horn antenna, specified as either a hornCorrugated or a hornConicalCorrugatedobject.

Number of corrugations used in calculating the pitch, specified as a positive scalar.

Example: 6

Data Types: double

Output Arguments

collapse all

Distance between two successive corrugations, specified as a positive scalar in meters.
