Example Overview

This example considers the application of analyzing base stations in a city.

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.

An urban database is imported from a .dxf and converted to a WinProp format. The urban database is modified, a tower and vegetation are added.

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, 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.
