February 10, 2021 -- Norwood, MA -- Artech House today announced the publication
Radio Wave Propagation Fundamentals, 2nd Edition, by Artem Saakian. This
completely updated second edition of an Artech House classic provides a thorough
introduction to the basic principles of electromagnetic wave propagation of
radio frequencies in real-world conditions, fully updated by including new achievements
in theory and technology. It serves as an invaluable daily reference for practitioners
in the field and as a complete, organized text on the subject. This comprehensive
resource covers a wide range of essential topics, from the classification of
radio waves, electromagnetic wave theory, and antennas for RF radio links, to
the impact of the earth surface on the propagation of ground waves, atmospheric
affects in radio wave propagation, and radio wave reception.
The book explores the propagation of the ground radio waves, namely the waves
that propagate in vicinity of the earth's surface (e.g., guided by that interface),
without involvement of any atmospheric effects. Specifics of the high-frequency
(HF) radio propagation due to reflections from ionospheric layers is studied,
based on commonly used models of the ionospheric vertical profiles. Scattering
of the radio waves of UHF and higher frequency bands from the random variations
of the tropospheric refraction index (from tiny air turbulences) are also considered
by using the principles of statistical radio-physics.
Analysis of propagation conditions on real propagation paths, including analysis
of the power budget of the VHF/UHF link to assure its stability (percentage
of availability within observation time frame), terrestrial, broadcast, mobile,
and satellite RF links are presented. The engineering design of the cellular
networks, including LTE 4G, 5G and upcoming higher generations is explored.
HF propagation predictions for extremely long-range links design for commercial
and military applications are explained. Packed with examples and problems,
this book provides a theoretical background for astrophysical, aeronomy and
geophysical instrumentation design.
Radio Wave Propagation Fundamentals is available now from Artech House,
a leading publisher of books for professionals in high-technology industries.
