Computation of Transmission / Penetration Loss

For each element, an individual transmission / penetration loss can be defined (in dB). If a ray is penetrating the object, this loss is added to the propagation loss of the ray.

WinProp offers a table (MS EXCEL Sheet) with different materials and their specific losses, depending on the thickness. You can enter the material, and the thickness and the sheet provide the appropriate transmission/penetration loss to be used.

Transmission / penetration of dielectric objects does not lead to a phase shift. Therefore, no additional phase offset is added to the phase of the ray at the receiver.
