SphericalTabularGainData Class

A function class for computing gain using tabular data provided in a spherical coordinate system. This class can be used in conjunction with the CustomGainPattern class to model an antenna pattern using measured gain data.

Syntax
public class SphericalTabularGainData : Function<Cartesian, double>

The SphericalTabularGainData type exposes the following members.

Constructors
  NameDescription
Protected methodSphericalTabularGainData(SphericalTabularGainData, CopyContext)
Initializes a new instance as a copy of an existing instance.
Public methodSphericalTabularGainData(Double, Double, Double, Boolean)
Initializes an instance given an array of theta values, an array of phi values, and a multidimensional array of gain values. Phi is defined as the azimuth angle from the positive x-axis to the orthogonal projection of the point in the x-y plane. Theta is defined as the zenith angle from the positive z-axis to the point. The gain values array must be arranged such that the rows of the array represent phi cuts through the antenna pattern and the columns represent theta cuts. Therefore, the first dimension of the gain values array must be the same size as the phi values array and the second dimension of the gain values array must be the same size as the theta values array. If duplicate phi/theta points are found, the first one that is found will be kept and subsequent phi/theta points are ignored. For example, if the phi array contains a value of 0 degrees and a value of 360 degrees (same cut through the sphere) all of the theta values at phi equal to 360 degrees will be ignored.
