We present numerical procedures for analyzing the properties of periodic structures and associated couplers based upon time domain simulation. Simple post processing procedures are given for determining Brillouin diagrams and complex field distributions of the traveling wave solutions, and the reflection coefficient of the traveling waves by the input and output. The availability of the reflection coefficient information facilitates a systematic and efficient procedure for matching the input
