This paper introduces an interrogation enhancer (IE) as an external system that boosts a reader continuous wave (CW) with its auxiliary CW. The boosted reader CW powers the backscatters from a passive ultrahigh frequency radio frequency identification (UHF RFID) tag to reach the reader in extended range. The system performance is verified according to the(More)
Two contrasting methods are traditionally available to analyze fatigue crack growth (FCG) lifetime in components. On the one hand, engineering software such as NASGRO and AFGROW provides pre-programmed stress intensity factor (SIF) solutions for simplified crack and component geometries, sophisticated crack growth equations including load interaction(More)
