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

Uniform placement of array elements limits its maximum frequency due to the formation of grating lobes. While non-uniform element or subarray spacing have significantly lower grating lobes, it reduces aperture efficiency and leads to arrays that are difficult to design and manufacture. We propose a modular asymmetric convex-shaped subarray to construct the array by rotation and translation, filling the aperture without overlaps or gaps. This new approach can achieve lower grating lobes compared to uniform array geometries. It can also lower design, manufacturing and operation costs by offering interoperable subarrays and provide array size flexibility.
