Abstract. The problem of T-mode propagation in the cruciform waveguide is solved. The boundary problem is reduced to an integral equation that is solved with help of Galerkin’s method. Expressions for dominant eigen mode field components are obtained. They are used for characteristic impedance calculation. Results of numerical simulation of characteristic impedance behavior are presented. They are compared with results obtained by HFSS, and good agreement between them is demonstrated.

Key words. T-mode, cruciform waveguide, Galerkin’s method, characteristic impedance.
