An integral equation is derived to approximate the aperture electric field for a coaxial waveguide that terminates at a conducting wedge. The integral equation is derived by retaining the standard kernel for the infinite-flange case and adapting the solution for the two-dimensional conducting wedge for use as the excitation term. The solution of this equation gives rise to an approximation to the TEM open-circuit voltage. Because only the excitation term is modified, the equation is useful for connectors that are greater than about one wavelength away from the corner. Theoretical and experimental results for the power transmitted down the coax are presented
