The BeerLambertLawAtmosphericAttenuationModel type exposes the following members.

Constructors
  NameDescription
Public methodBeerLambertLawAtmosphericAttenuationModel
Initializes a new instance.
Protected methodBeerLambertLawAtmosphericAttenuationModel(BeerLambertLawAtmosphericAttenuationModel, CopyContext)

Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyCentralBody
Gets or sets the central body.
Public propertyExtinctionCoefficientModel
Gets or sets the model for calculating the extinction coefficient.
Public propertyIsFrozen
Gets a value indicating whether this object is frozen. A frozen object cannot be modified and an ObjectFrozenException will be thrown if an attempt is made to do so.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Public propertyMaximumAltitude
Gets or sets the maximum altitude in meters.

Methods
  NameDescription
Protected methodCheckForSameDefinition(BeerLambertLawAtmosphericAttenuationModel)
Checks to determine if another instance has the same definition as this instance and returns if it does. Derived classes MUST override this method and check all new fields introduced by the derived class for definitional equivalence. It is NOT necessary to check base class fields because the base class will already have done that. When overriding this method, you should NOT call the base implementation because it will return for all derived-class instances. Derived classes should check the type of other to preserve the symmetric nature of IsSameDefinition(Object).
Protected methodCheckForSameDefinition(DefinitionalObject)
Checks to determine if another instance has the same definition as this instance and returns if it does. Derived classes MUST override this method and check all new fields introduced by the derived class for definitional equivalence. It is NOT necessary to check base class fields because the base class will already have done that. When overriding this method, you should NOT call the base implementation because it will return for all derived-class instances. Derived classes should check the type of other to preserve the symmetric nature of IsSameDefinition(Object).
(Inherited from SignalPropagationModel.)
Protected methodCheckForSameDefinition(SignalPropagationModel)
Checks to determine if another instance has the same definition as this instance and returns if it does. Derived classes MUST override this method and check all new fields introduced by the derived class for definitional equivalence. It is NOT necessary to check base class fields because the base class will already have done that. When overriding this method, you should NOT call the base implementation because it will return for all derived-class instances. Derived classes should check the type of other to preserve the symmetric nature of IsSameDefinition(Object).
(Overrides SignalPropagationModelCheckForSameDefinition(SignalPropagationModel).)
Public methodClone
Clones this object using the specified context.
(Overrides DefinitionalObjectClone(CopyContext).)
Protected methodComputeCurrentDefinitionHashCode
Computes a hash code based on the current properties of this object. Derived classes MUST override this method and compute a hash code that combines: a unique hash code seed, the base implementation result, and the hash codes of all new fields introduced by the derived class which are used in the CheckForSameDefinition(DefinitionalObject) method.
(Overrides SignalPropagationModelComputeCurrentDefinitionHashCode.)
Public methodEnumerateDependencies
Enumerates the dependencies of this object by calling EnumerateT(T) for each object that this object directly depends upon. Derived classes which contain additional dependencies MUST override this method, call the base implementation, and enumerate dependencies introduced by the derived class.
(Overrides DefinitionalObjectEnumerateDependencies(DependencyEnumerator).)
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodFreeze
Freezes this object. Further attempts to modify it will result in an ObjectFrozenException.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Protected methodFreezeAggregatedObjects
Called by Freeze to also freeze any objects that are considered to be a part of this object. Derived classes which contain additional aggregated objects MUST override this method, call the base implementation, and freeze aggregated objects introduced by the derived class. The objects that need to be frozen in this method are frequently created in this object's constructor and are not settable via properties.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Public methodGetDefinitionHashCode
Gets a hash code representing the definition of this object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as the default hash function.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetSignalPropagator
Get a propagator which can propagate a signal along the given communication link.
(Overrides SignalPropagationModelGetSignalPropagator(EvaluatorGroup, IServiceProvider).)
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsSameDefinition
Determines if this object has the same definition as another object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodThrowIfFrozen
Throws ObjectFrozenException if this object IsFrozen. This method should be called from any method or property that modifies this object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Public methodToString
Returns a string that represents the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)

Remarks

The receive power is modeled using the equation Pr = Pt * exp(-alpha * L) where Pt is the transmit power, alpha is the wavelength dependent extinction coefficient, and L is the path length. The model computes up to a user selectable maximum altitude. If either the transmitter or receiver is above the maximum altitude, the path length is computed from the point where the line of sight vector, between the transmitter and receiver objects, intersects the maximum altitude to the object (transmitter or receiver) which resides below the maximum altitude. If both transmitter and receiver reside below the maximum altitude, the path length is the line of sight distance between the transmitter and receiver.

This is the Beer-Lambert Law atmospheric absorption model taken from chapter 3 page 107 of "Optical Wireless Communications - System and Channel Modeling with MATLAB" by Z. Ghassemlooy, W. Popoola, and S. Rajbhandari.
