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 interaction of fibre Bragg grating sensors with ultrasonic acoustic waves in water is investigated in the near field region of a 1-3 piezocomposite transducer. Longitudinal and transverse strain coupling is studied using two different grating designs and high fidelity measurement of the emitted field was demonstrated.
