traceRectangular

Create rectangular trace

Description

Use the traceRectangular object to create a rectangular trace centered at the origin on the X-Y plane.

Creation

Description

example

trace = traceRectangular creates a rectangular trace centered at the origin and on the X-Y plane.

example

trace = traceRectangular(Name=Value) sets Properties using one or more name-value arguments. For example, traceRectangular(Center=[1 1]) creates a rectangular trace centered at [1 1]. Properties not specified retain their default values.

Properties

expand all

Name of the rectangular trace, specified as a character vector or a string scalar.

Example: trace = traceRectangular(Name="rectangletrace1")

Data Types: char | string

Center of the rectangular trace in Cartesian coordinates, specified as a two-element vector.

Example: trace = traceRectangular(Center=[1 1])

Data Types: double

Length of the rectangle in meters, specified as a positive scalar.

Example: trace = traceRectangular(Length=0.0500)

Data Types: double

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

Example: trace = traceRectangular(Width=0.015)

Data Types: double

Create a rectangular trace with default properties.

trace = traceRectangular
trace = 
  traceRectangular with properties:

      Name: 'mytraceRectangular'
    Center: [0 0]
    Length: 0.0200
     Width: 0.0050

View the trace.

show(trace)

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

Create a 2 cm-by-2 cm rectangular trace.

trace = traceRectangular(Length=0.02,Width=0.02);

Rotate the trace by 45 degrees about the z-axis.

trace = rotateZ(trace,45);

Mesh the trace at a maximum edge length of 5 mm.

mesh(trace,MaxEdgeLength=5e-3)
