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

Location specific, propagation predictions for radio systems with outdoor base-stations and indoor users are advantageous when planning or designing broadband wireless systems. A new model, based on a combination of three-dimensional ray-tracing for the outdoor environment and semi-empirical methods for the indoor-outdoor building interface and indoor propagation, that yields such predictions, is presented. In the paper an algorithmic description of the model is provided along with a critical comparison between its predictions and measurements. The model produces statistical predictions of field strength and time dispersion characteristics within a target building.
