A theoretical method based on the induction equivalence principle and Green's functions is presented here to calculate the scattered electromagnetic fields from exterior plane building facades in urban environment. The reflection coefficient of the whole inhomogeneous structure can be calculated for different incidence angles. The derivation of appropriate Green's functions is presented. The method takes into account the large-scale discontinuities on the facade. It is simple to implement and fast to obtain results because of the absence of poles in the Green's functions expressions. The accuracy of the method is discussed comparing to a commercial software and physical optics as another method based on equivalent currents. The article concludes with a statistical study on the influence of concrete permittivity variation on the reflection coefficient of a concreteߝglass building facade.
