Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

A new three dimensional (3D) ray-tracing propagation prediction tool (3D MRT-1) is being developed for characterisation of wideband mobile radio channel. It calculates the amplitude, phase, angle-of-departure (AOD), angle-of-arrival (AOA), optical path length and received field strength for each valid reflected or diffracted ray path. It also constructs the power delay profile (PDP) and extracts important multipath channel parameters needed in system design such as transmission loss, received power, average delay spread and RMS delay spread. As part of a model validation process, measurements have been made in a residential suburban area of Malvern, UK, at 2.38 GHz.
