In this paper, a two-dimensional (2D) simulation method for the calculation of radio coverage in urban-area sites is presented, based on the analytical methods of physical optics (PO) and the physical theory of diffraction (PTD). The method takes into account the electromagnetic field at the receiving antenna due to first- and higher-order propagation mechanisms. Emphasis is given on the computation of the scattered near or Fresnel-zone field using numerical techniques, since in a typical urban… CONTINUE READING
