In this letter, a new channel-adaptive beamforming method is proposed for OFDMA systems with smart antennas. In the method, the size of a cluster for resource unit is determined adaptively according to a region-splitting criterion. It is shown by simulations that the proposed method shows good performance in both frequency-flat and frequency-selective channels.
