**Ground Reflection (Two-Ray) Model**

Propagation Model that considers both the direct (LOS) path and a ground reflected path between transmitter and the receiver. Reasonably accurate model for predicting large scale signal strength over distance of several kilometres. The E-field due to Line-Of-Sight is given by ELOS The E-field for the ground reflected wave is given by Eg The Total E-field is a sum of LOS and Reflected components, 2006 UMAIR HASHMI Spring 2011

**Ground Reflection (Two-Ray) Model**

Example A mobile is located 5 km away from a BS and uses vertical lambda/4 monopole antenna with gain of 2.55 dB to receive cellular signals. The E-field at 1 km from the transmitter is measured to be 10-3 V/m. The carrier frequency is 900 MHz. Find length and gain of receiving antenna Find receiver power at the mobile using 2-ray ground reflection model assuming height of transmitting antenna is 50m and receiving antenna is 1.5 m. 2006 UMAIR HASHMI Spring 2011

Fresnel Zone Geometry The phase difference between LOS and diffracted path is a function of Height and Position of the obstruction Transmitter and Receiver Location FRESNEL ZONES Fresnel Zones represent successive regions where secondary waves have a path length from the transmitter to the receiver which are nλ/2 greater than the total path length of a LOS path The successive concentric circles on the plane have path length increment by λ/2. The successive circles are called Fresnel Zones and successive Fresnel Zones have the effect of producing constructive and destructive interference. 2006 UMAIR HASHMI Spring 2011

**Fresnel Zone Geometry EXAMPLE**

30
Scattering When a wave impinges on a rough surface, the reflected wave is spread out (diffused) in all directions due to scattering. The dimensions of the objects inducing Scattering are comparable to λ To judge if a surface is smooth or rough (if we will have reflection or scattering) when a wave impinges upon that surface, the Critical Height hc is given by hc = λ / ( 8 sin Өi) If maximum protuberance hmax < hc : Smooth Surface hmax > hc : Rough Surface The reflected E-Fields for h > hc is given by : 2006 UMAIR HASHMI Spring 2011

31
**Radar Cross Section Model (RCS Model)**

The Radar Cross Section (RCS) of a scattering object is defined as the ratio of the power density of the signal scattered in the direction of the receiver to the power density of the radio wave incident upon the scattering object. The bistatic radar equation is used to compute the propagation of a wave travelling in free space that impinges on a distant scattering object and then reradiated in the direction of the receiver. The objects are assumed to be in the Far-Field region (Fraunhofer region) PR (dBm) = PT (dBm) + GT (dBi) + 20 log λ + RCS [dB m2 ] – 30 log (4 pi) – 20 log dT – 20 log dR 2006 UMAIR HASHMI Spring 2011

Log-Normal Shadowing Surrounding environment clutter not considered in previous model. Received power can vary at quite a significant value at 2 points having same T-R separation distances. Path Loss (PL) is random and distributed log-normally about the mean distance-dependent value. 2006 UMAIR HASHMI Spring 2011

38
Log-Normal Shadowing Log-Normal distribution describes the random shadowing effects which occur over a large number of measurement locations which have the same T-R separation distance. This phenomenon is called the log-normal shadowing. Implies that measured signal levels at specific T-R separation have a Gaussian (normal) distribution about the distance-dependent mean. 2006 UMAIR HASHMI Spring 2011
