Concepts and Results for 3D Digital Terrain-Based Wave Propagation Models: An Overview

  title={Concepts and Results for 3D Digital Terrain-Based Wave Propagation Models: An Overview},
  author={Thomas K{\"u}rner and Dieter J. Cichon and Werner Wiesbeck},
  journal={IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications},
Mobile communication links are severely influenced by propagation effects. Wave propagation in the VHF/UHF frequency range over natural and man-made terrain is strongly dependent on topography and morphography. Propagation m d eling is based on a ray-optical approach. Wave interactions, like diffraction and scattering, over the propagation path are described by the uniform theory of diffraction and physical optics. State-of-the-art propagation models for rural and urban areas are presented for… CONTINUE READING
