13
Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY ©2002 by H.L. Bertoni13 Summary of Characteristics of the Urban Environment High rise core surrounded by large area having low buildings Outside of core, buildings are of more nearly equal height with occasional high rise building –Near core; 4 - 6 story buildings, farther out; 1 - 4 story buildings Street grid organizes building into rows –Side-to-side spacing is small –Front-to-front and back-to-back spacing are nearly equal (~50 m) Taylor prediction methods to environment, channel characteristic –Small area average power among low buildings found from simplified geometry –High rise environments and higher order channel statistics needs ray tracing

Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY ©2002 by H.L. Bertoni17 Comparison of Theory for Mobile Antenna Height Gain with Measurements Median value of measurements made at many locations for 200MHz signals in Reading, England, whose nearly uniform height H B =12.5 m.

18
Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY ©2002 by H.L. Bertoni18 Summary of Propagation Over Low Buildings A heuristic argument has been made for separating the path gain into three factors –Free space path gain to the building before the mobile –Reduction Q of the roof top fields due to diffraction past previous rows of buildings –Diffraction of the rooftop fields down to the mobile Diffraction of the rooftop gives the observed height gain for the mobile antenna.

Bertoni19 Computing Q for High Base Station Antennas Approximating the rows of buildings by a series of diffracting screens Finding the reduction factor using an incident plane wave Settling behavior of the plane wave solution and its interpretation in terms of Fresnel zones Comparison with measurements

20
Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY ©2002 by H.L. Bertoni20 Approximations for Computing Q Effect of previous rows on the field at top of last row of building before mobile External and internal walls of buildings reflect and scatter incident waves - waves propagate over the tops of buildings not through the buildings. Gaps between buildings are usually not aligned with path from base station to mobile - replace individual buildings by connected row of of buildings. Variations in building height effect the shadow loss, but not the range dependence - take all buildings to be the same height. Forward diffraction through small angles is approximately independent of object cross section - replace rows of buildings by absorbing screens. For high base station antenna and distances greater than 1 km, the effect of the buildings on spherical wave field is the same as for a plane wave - Q( ) found for incident plane wave. For short ranges and low antennas, the effect of buildings on spherical wave field is the same as for a cylindrical wave - find Q M for line source.

22
Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY ©2002 by H.L. Bertoni22 Plane Wave Solution for High Base Station Antennas –Reduction of rooftop fields for a spherical wave incident on the rows of buildings is the is the same as the reduction for an incident plane wave after many rows. –Reduction is found from multiple forward diffraction past an array of absorbing screens for a plane wave with unit amplitude that is incident at glancing the angle

23
Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY ©2002 by H.L. Bertoni23 Physical Optics Approximations for Reduction of the Rooftop Fields I.Replace rows of buildings by parallel absorbing screens II.For parallel screens, the reduction factor is found by repeated application of the Kirchhoff integral.

Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY ©2002 by H.L. Bertoni36 Summary of Q for High Base Station Antennas Rows of buildings act as a series of diffracting screens Forward diffraction reduces the rooftop field by a factor that approaches a constant past many rows The settling behavior can be understood in terms of Fresnel zones, and leads to the reduction factor Q, which depends on a single parameter g p Good comparison with measurements is obtained using a simple power expansion for Q

38
Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY ©2002 by H.L. Bertoni38 Cylindrical Wave Solutions for Microcells Using Low Base Station Antennas Microcell coverage out to about 1 km involves propagation over a limited number of rows. Must account for the number of rows covered, and hence for the field variation in the plane perpendicular to the rows of buildings. Therefore use a cylindrical incident wave with axis parallel to the array of absorbing screens to find the field reduction due to propagation past rows of buildings.
