In this work we propose random models representing collapsed building rubble to evaluate phenomena of attenuation and propagation of radio signal through this kind of trans- mission medium. The aim of the work is to offer a valid propagation channel model to facilitate, in case of emergency, rescue operations using modern technologies employing RF signals. The models involves different materials and the propagation is examined for several conditions of the rubble (degree of compression, graininess etc.). The study permits to estimate the Path Loss by calculating mean, standard deviation and minimum value for a large number of scenarios to provide a statistical analysis of the collected data.

Abstract

In this work we propose random models representing collapsed building rubble to evaluate phenomena of attenuation and propagation of radio signal through this kind of trans- mission medium. The aim of the work is to offer a valid propagation channel model to facilitate, in case of emergency, rescue operations using modern technologies employing RF signals. The models involves different materials and the propagation is examined for several conditions of the rubble (degree of compression, graininess etc.). The study permits to estimate the Path Loss by calculating mean, standard deviation and minimum value for a large number of scenarios to provide a statistical analysis of the collected data.
