We propose a novel segmented locally one dimensional finite difference time domain (S-LOD-FDTD) method for modeling the electromagnetic wave propagation inside electrically large tunnels. The proposed S-LOD-FDTD method reduces the computational resources by dividing the problem space into segments. To validate this method, we simulate the propagation in real tunnels and compare the results with the published measured data. The comparisons reveal that the proposed method can predict the fields accurately in real, large tunnels at longer ranges with significant savings in execution time and memory.
