This article aims to practically assess the point scatterer formulation to characterize the electromagnetic behavior of ornamental plants with varying thickness at 60 GHz. The proposed propagation model uses various point scatterers with specific radiation characteristics, distributed within a computational area, to describe the effect of the plants present… CONTINUE READING
