Through an integration of wireless communication and sensing technologies, the concept of a body sensor network (BSN) was initially proposed in the early decade with the aim to provide an essential technology for wearable, ambulatory, and pervasive health monitoring for elderly people and chronic patients. It has become a hot research area due to big(More)
A novel 3D Frequency Selective Surface (FSS) with horn shaped resonators is proposed which exhibits a very wide stop band. This new horn shaped resonator is a modification from a 3D FSS consisting of square cylinder unit elements. This feature introduces frequency-selective surfaces with the added advantage of lowering the sensitivity of the FSS frequency(More)
—In this paper, an attempt is made to extend the deformation model of an antenna embedded in vehicular component, where the component consists of a viscoelastic thermoset composite polymer commonly known as Sheet Moulding Compound (SMC). The initial model developed takes into account time dependent heat transfer from the tool surface into the SMC charge and(More)
Recently introduced passive wireless strain sensors based on microstrip patch antennas have shown great potential for reliable health and usage monitoring in aerospace and civil industries. However, the wireless interrogation range of these sensors is limited to few centimeters, which restricts their practical application. This paper presents an(More)
Due to the growing implications of energy costs and carbon footprints, the need to adopt inexpensive, green energy harvesting strategies are of paramount importance for the long-term conservation of the environment and the global economy. To address this, the feasibility of harvesting low power density ambient RF energy simultaneously from multiple sources(More)
An analysis of the effect moisture has on the effective relative complex permittivity of ash particles created within fires has been presented within this paper. The inclusion of moisture within this hydroscopic material has a significant effect on the effective complex permittivity and, hence, its scattering ability. The investigations developed a mixing(More)
