Single-Story Building

Compute indoor propagation in a single-story building.

Model Type

This is an indoor project featuring a single-story E-shaped building with a height of 5 m.

Sites and Antennas

There are two omnidirectional antenna sites placed at a height of 1.6 m but at different locations in the building for best coverage. Both the antennas use the same carrier frequency of 1.8 GHz.

Computational Method

The prediction method used in this model is a 3D intelligent ray tracing (IRT - with preprocessed data). This method requires a preprocessed geometry database.
Tip: Click Project > Edit Project Parameter and click the Computation tab to change the model.
The preprocessed database is created in WallMan. The 3D intelligent ray tracing performs a rigorous 3d ray tracing prediction resulting in high accuracy while preprocessing reduces the required computation to a large degree.

The results are predicted at a height of 1.3 m.


Propagation results show, at every location, the power received from each transmitting antenna individually. Figure 1 shows a prediction at 1.3 m.
