The modal transmission-line (MTL) method is used to analyze the shielding effectiveness of buildings, which is an important parameter for the accurate planning of microcellular communication networks. For that, the buildings are modeled as multilayer lossy periodic structures. After a description of the extended MTL-theory, the newly developed MTL model is applied to brick walls, reinforced-concrete walls and concrete block walls. From a comparison of the MTL-results with previously published theoretical or experimental results it is concluded that the MTL method is very well suited, because it is accurate as well as computational time-efficient.
