Experimental Validation of Second-Order Diffraction Coefficients for Computation of Path-Loss Past Buildings
journal contributionposted on 2014-01-27, 00:00 authored by Danilo Erricolo
Electromagnetic fields diffracted past buildings are not correctly predicted by ray-tracing methods using first-order diffraction coefficients. Correct results are obtained by using second-order diffraction coefficients as demonstrated by the experimental validation provided and discussed herein.
