The problem of a plane wave impinging upon a semi-infinite paralle-plate waveguide is investigated. The interior fields can be analyzed by converting the initial field into vaveguide modes. Kirchhoff approximation is usually made at the waveguide aperture in the literature. In this paper, a modified approximation is made using the Uniform Gemetrical Theory of Diffraction(UTD). Numerical results show excellent agreement between UTD-supplemented mode-matching solution and UTD solution.
