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

In this paper, we propose a new homogeneous burst structure for the time-division duplex (TDD) component of the universal mobile telecommunication system (UMTS). The midamble period is removed and replaced by a data field to enhance the system's spectrum efficiency. Alternatively, a pilot signal is loaded into one of these bursts over each time slot, in order to ensure a continuous channel tracking by means of a pilot-assisted adaptation. Computer simulations are used to assess the performance of the adaptation strategy over the proposed time burst.
