Fluid-Flow Mobility

  • Radhika Ranjan Roy


The applications of the fluid-flow mobility model are explained in the context of both cellular wireless and mobile ad hoc networks along with its derivation of the analytical model. It is shown that the simulation results closely match the analytical results. How the mobility of nodes degrades the performances of the network is examined in detail.
