Modelling of Shadowing Loss Due to Huge Non-Polygonal Structures in Urban Radio Propagation

Progress In Electromagnetics Research B, Vol. 6, 123-134, 2008
Abstract
Ray tracing algorithms rely on two dimensional or three dimensional database. They use ray optical techniques referred to as the uniform theory of diffraction (UTD) using building database given as polygons. Building geometries can also be modelled as having non-planar geometries, and this would be important in modeling of shadowing loss due to curved structures in urban radio propagation. To demonstrate modelling of buildings as non-polygonal geometries, a particular building composition involving 3D cruved geometries is chosen, and shadowing loss for this building composition is studied via UTD ray tracing. Building structure considered in this study involves main canonical shapes of non-planar geometries including cone, cylinder and sphere. Single and multiple interaction of surface diffractions, effect of creeping waves are taken into consideration in the analysis.
