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

This paper introduces an adaptive broadband beamforming structure which permits constant resolution over a larger frequency interval spanning several octaves. Beamformers operating in uniform subbands are grouped into units within an octave. Different octave units are applied to process signals collected from arrays of appropriately scaled aperture, therefore giving a constant overall resolution. Simulation results benefits in terms of mean square error performance and cost compared to standard uniformly and non-uniformly spaced arrays.
