This work intends to compute the ground influence in communication signals, obtained at specific points of an urban micro cell. This was performed by implementing a full-wave simulator, based on the novel B-FDTD method and on parallel processing. The U-PML for conductive media has been employed to perform the domain truncation. The obtained results present good agreement to those available in literature.
