Example Overview

This example considers the application of analyzing cell phone reception inside a building, set in an urban environment. The urban environment includes buildings and vegetation.

The 3D model of the urban environment is created in WallMan using an imported aerial photograph, tracing the building and assigning a height to the buildings. A model of a building, as created in Example 1, is imported onto the urban environment.

The antenna pattern was obtained using Altair Feko, but the steps on how to use Feko to obtain the antenna pattern are not in the scope of this example.

Coverage plots are produced using ProMan to determine the cell phone reception inside a building which is set in an urban environment. Two different propagation models are used, namely: dominant path model and COST 231 - extended Walfisch-Ikegami model.


This example does not specify the exact coordinates where to add buildings and vegetation in the urban environment or where to place the building, but instead, it highlights the steps to create these structures in WallMan.

You are encouraged to create your own urban environment and structures using WallMan.
