Let's say we have the following wireless communication system with obstacles located as drawn in this picture

Solving this using Bullington method is straight-forward, only obstacles that fall into first Fresnel zone are taken into account, then, for those who DO fall into first Fresnel zone, we determine it's height, and then, using some formulas, we find diffraction loss.

However, i need to do this using another approach, called Epstein-Peterson method. Since im not that familiar with that approach and i tried to google it and i failed to find any examples that are understandable to me, i'd like to hear from someone who is familiar with this method. Any help appreciated!

NOTE: I am not quite sure if this is the right place for this type of questions, however, since there's no such thing as telecom engineering stack exchange, i decided to ask here.

  • I would guess that this may be on-topic for Electrical Engineering, but really isn't a fit here. There is also Physics. – Ron Maupin Oct 6 at 15:20
  • @RonMaupin I've posted this question on EE SE 25 hours ago, still without response, so i thought i might try here. – cdummie Oct 6 at 16:05
  • It may be on-topic for Physics or one of the other science sites. This is really not "about professionally managed networks in a business environment." A network engineer does not really get involved in this type of thing. – Ron Maupin Oct 6 at 16:11
  • By the way, you asked on a weekend, so the Electrical Engineering guys may not get around to it until sometime on Monday. – Ron Maupin Oct 6 at 16:13
  • @RonMaupin I believe you are right, this maybe isn't the best place for this question, this would be absolutely appropriate question for telecommunications engineering stack exchange, unfortunately, such thing doesn't exist. Anyway, thanks for the feedback. – cdummie Oct 6 at 16:56
