We consider the electromagnetic field of a point charged particle moving along the axis of a cylindrical waveguide from a homogeneously filled area to a dielectric loading area having an axially symmetrical channel. We are interested in studying the Cherenkov radiation excited in the bilayer area. The solution is performed by expanding the field in each area in a series of orthogonal eigenmodes. The main attention is focused on investigation of the wave field in the bilayer section. We show that, at a given observation point, the "reduced wakefield" is simplified with time (the number of modes decreases). The obtained results are generalized for the case of a bunch with Gaussian longitudinal profile. The typical numerical results for wakefield formation process are presented. These results agree with simulations done by the industry standard electromagnetic code CST Particle Studio.
