This paper presents a comprehensive study of capacity characterization in mobile wireless networks employing directive communications and full-duplex communication technology. We address the impact of nodes' mobility, directive beams, and full-duplex capabilities on the network capacity. Firstly, we derive the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) for a reference receiver, considering the combined effects of mobility, directive beams, and full-duplex communications. The derived SINR is then utilized to calculate the network's capacity. To validate the proposed model, extensive simulations are performed, incorporating various scenarios of mobility levels, self-interference suppression levels in the full-duplex wireless system, and different receiving thresholds. The simulation results confirm the accuracy and effectiveness of the derived SINR-based capacity characterization model under real-world conditions. Furthermore, we study the probability of a receiver simultaneously decoding multiple packets as a function of the receiver's threshold and full-duplex self-interference suppression. The probability is crucial for assessing the network performance and facilitating future optimization schemes aimed at regulating the number of competing nodes in a given spatial region. The validated model and probability characterization offer valuable insights into network performance evaluation and can be instrumental in devising future efficient optimization strategies for managing network contention at the medium access control and enhancing the network performance.
