Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

The prediction of edge element behavior is a common problem during the design of large array antennas. The performance of the center elements can be approximated by an infinite array model, but the edge element patterns and active reflection coefficients cannot. The full element-by-element analysis of a large finite array is either excessively time consuming or impossible due to the computer power required. A study has recently been carried out to develop and test methods of fully predicting large array performance using infinite array data. The methods devised are presented, together with comparisons of predicted performance and measured data from a 163-element WG-16 array
