—In this paper, we analyze the performance of soft decision decoded, synchronous, fast frequency-hopping spread-spectrum multiple-access networks using í µí±-ary frequency shift keying in Rayleigh fading channels under the assumption that the number of frequency hopping slots is sufficiently large. The joint probability density function (pdf) of the… (More)
—In this letter, an approximation to the performance of downlink cellular orthogonal frequency division multiple access networks under log-normal shadowing and Ricean fading is evaluated. The interference statistic is shown to significantly deviate from the Gaussian distribution as shown in previous results under Rayleigh fading.
The accurate measurement of diverse displacements of structures is an important index for the evaluation of a structure's safety. In this study, a comparative analysis was conducted to determine the integrated RTK-GPS/accelerometer method that can provide the most precise structure displacement measurements. For this purpose, three methods of calculating… (More)
To strengthen concrete beams, a new anchorage was proposed, and its performance was evaluated in this study. Seven concrete beams were manufactured and flexurally loaded with displacement control up to the failure point. As important test variables, the anchorage type (new/conventional) and the prestress levels in the steel rebar (0, 50, and 100 kN) were… (More)
This study involved applying a design code change on a modular bridge design. The top flange of a modular T-girder bridge was examined by the Korean Highway Bridge Design Code Limit State Design (2015) and was compared with the Korean Highway Bridge Design Code (2010) in terms of the stability under the bending moment. In addition, the cross-sectional… (More)
In cellular systems, the interference has been the most critical issue that practically limits the performance of overall networks. Furthermore, the distribution of the inter-cell interference (ICI) in conventional cellular networks employing orthogonal frequency-division multiple-access (OFDMA) with quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) tends to approach a… (More)
The performance of M-ary turbo coded synchronous, fast frequency-hopping spread spectrum multiple-access (FHSS-MA) networks with M-ary frequency shift keying (MFSK) and noncoherent detection is analyzed under Rayleigh fading. Results indicate that M-ary turbo codes dramatically enhance the performance of FHSS-MA networks using MFSK compared to binary turbo… (More)
