A simulation study of Gaussian beam transmission through factual atmospheric turbulence was carried out using mathematical software and H-V57 model of atmospheric refractive index structure. After analyzing the selection of phase plate number, the light intensity distribution of the Gaussian beam was simulated by different height of the factual atmosphere turbulence. Results show that factual atmospheric turbulence will make the phase and amplitude of Gaussian beam in larger deviation, beam spreading and beam wander, scintillation and phase fluctuation phenomenon.
