Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

A characterization of the short range (< 100 cm) narrowband wireless channel is presented, appropriate to a dense network of wireless transceivers operating in the 2.4 GHz ISM band. Transmission loss measurements have been made in vertical and horizontal polarisations using rectaxial antennas for a range of antenna heights and separation distances. A preliminary interpretation of the results suggests that surface wave propagation may be significant for short wireless links such as might be used in sensor network applications.
