A short description of “walfisch-ikegami propagation model”

walfisch-ikegami propagation model

The Walfish–Ikegami model is an empirical propagation model for an urban area, which is especially applicable for micro cells but can also be used for macro cells.

Model Parameters:

The mean value for street widths (w) is given in meters and the road orientation angle (θ or φ) in degrees.

The mean value for building heights (h_{roof}) is an average over the calculation area and is given in meters.

The mean value for building separation (b) is calculated from the center of one building to the center of another building and is also given in meters.

The Equation:
