The flanged parallel-plate waveguide is analyzed based on the method of Kobayashi potentials (KP) using Fourier functional space. The presentation of the method is free from intricate mathematics. Standard integral identities are used for problem formulation, without direct usage of Weber-Schafheitlin (WS) integrals. The Fourier function space is exploited for the construction of the governing linear equations instead of Jacobi polynomials. A simple strategy is suggested for the evaluation of the required improper integrals. Radiation into lossless and lossy media is considered. Near-field results are rigorously validated through convergence analysis. Far-field patterns are compared with predictions of the surface equivalence theorem (SET).
