The concept of Rice's sum of sinusoids is often applied to the design of deterministic simulation models for Rice fading channels. This paper investigates in detail the level-crossing rate (LCR), average duration of fades (ADF), and cumulative distribution function (CDF) of such classes of simulation models. Exact and simple approximative formulas are deduced for these statistical quantities. Several numerical results for the derived expressions are presented by using different procedures for the design of the parameters of the deterministic simulation model. Moreover, comparisons with the corresponding simulation results-obtained by evaluating the deterministic simulation models output data-are also given
