Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The prediction of edge element behavior is a common problem during the design of large array antennas. The performance of the center elements can be approximated by an infinite array model, but the edge element patterns and active reflection coefficients cannot. The full element-by-element analysis of a large finite array is either excessively time consuming or impossible due to the computer power required. A study has recently been carried out to develop and test methods of fully predicting large array performance using infinite array data. The methods devised are presented, together with comparisons of predicted performance and measured data from a 163-element WG-16 array.
