This paper deals with radio resource allocation in fourth generation 4G wireless mobile networks based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access OFDMA as an access method. In IEEE 802.16 m standard, a contiguous method for subchannel construction is adopted in order to reduce OFDMA system complexity. In this context, we propose a new subchannel gain computation method depending on frequency responses dispersion. This method has a crucial role in the resource management and optimization. In a single service access, we propose a dynamic resource allocation algorithm at the physical layer aiming to maximize the cell data rate while ensuring fairness among users. In heterogeneous data traffics, we study scheduling in order to provide delay guaranties to real-timeservices, maximize throughput of non-real-time services while ensuring fairness to users. We compare performances to recent existing algorithms in OFDMA systems showing that proposed schemes provide lower complexity, higher total system capacity, and fairness among users.
