Munich, Germany

Calculate urban propagation in the city of Munich using the DPM.

Model Type

The geometry is described by topography (elevation) and by urban buildings, see Figure 1. Each building is modeled as an extruded polygon.

Sites and Antennas

There are three transmitter sites at different locations. Each site has a single antenna. One is an omnidirectional (isotropic) radiator operating on a carrier frequency of 900 MHz. The remaining two transmitters are directional antennas operating on a carrier frequency of 1800 MHz. The antenna patterns used in the scenario are stored in .apb files. The patterns can be visualized with AMan.

Computational Method

The DPM computation method is used, which focuses on the most relevant path and, as a result, leads to shorter computation times.
Tip: Click Project > Edit Project Parameter and click the Computation tab to change the model.


Propagation results show at every location the power received from each transmitting antenna by a hypothetical isotropic receiver. Figure 2 shows power results for Site 2 Antenna 2 at a height of 1.5 m.
