The channel estimation techniques for pilot-based OFDM systems are investigated. The channel estimation is studied for different pilot densities (2, 4, 6, and 10) in frequency-domain and fixed pilot allocation in temporal-domain for low delay spread and high delay spread channels. The estimation of channel in frequency-domain is based on interpolation,(More)
Sustainable supply chain network design is a rich area for academic research that is still in its infancy and has potential to affect supply chain performance. Increasing regulations for carbon and waste management are forcing firms to consider their supply chains from ecological and social objectives, but in reality, however, facilities and the links(More)
BACKGROUND Acute asthma is a chronic condition affecting people of all ages around the world and hence, is one of the leading causes of emergency department (ED) visits and hospital admissions globally. Most of them are related to poor patient practices and a weak healthcare system. The aim of our study was to assess the reasons for the increased usage of(More)
Today, outsourcing query processing tasks to remote cloud servers becomes a viable option; such outsourcing calls for encrypting data stored at the server so as to render it secure against eavesdropping adversaries and/or an honest-but-curious server itself. At the same time, to be efficiently managed, outsourced data should be indexed, and even adaptively(More)
INTRODUCTION The most prevalent form of hypertension is systolic blood pressure (SBP) and it is considered to be predisposing risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The objective of the study was to assess self-care practices, knowledge and awareness of hypertension, especially related to SBP among cardiac hypertensive patients. METHODOLOGY A Cross(More)
INTRODUCTION Perioperative hyperglycemia has been shown to be related to higher levels of morbidity and mortality in patients on cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), both diabetic and non-diabetic. Blood electrolytes, like sodium, potassium, calcium, and chloride play a very important role in the normal functioning(More)
— Until recently vehicles and transportation systems were considered as the realm of mechanical engineers, but the need for the road safety and desire to be connected to the world, has broaden the industry scope. In order to do so Intelligent Transport System has been introduced and for few years, Vehicular Ad hoc Networks are getting much attention. The(More)
The objective of this paper is to study the feasibility of Broadband technologies for home application in an effective manner and to develop a simplified transfer characteristic model for the low voltage indoor power line for Broadband power line communication based on the transmission line theory using software simulation for generalization purpose as it(More)
