    This paper is on the design of practical distributed space-time codes for wireless relay networks with multiple antennas terminals. The amplify-and-forward scheme is used in a way that each relay transmits a scaled version ...
  • Maham, Behrouz; Hjorungnes, Are; Debbah, Merouane (2010 IEEE 72nd Vehicular Technology Conference - Fall, 2010)
    We consider a wireless relay network with with hybrid-automatic retransmission request (HARQ) and Rayleigh fading channels. In this paper, we analyze the outage probability of the multi-relay delay-limited HARQ system with ...
  • Nadeem, Abid; Memon, Shazim Ali; Lo, Tommy Yiu (Construction and Building Materials, 2014-07-15)
    Abstract Ordinary concrete is generally considered to have satisfactory fire resistance but when it comes to high strength concrete it shows extensive damage or even catastrophic failure at elevated temperatures. This ...
  • Busquets, Rosa; Kozynchenko, Oleksandr P.; Whitby, Raymond L.D.; Tennison, Stephen R.; Cundy, Andrew B. (Water Research, 2014-09-15)
    Abstract Current water treatment technologies are inefficient at treating water contaminated with metaldehyde, an 8-member cyclic tetramer of acetaldehyde widely used as a molluscicide in large-scale agriculture and in ...
  • Mikhalovsky, S. V.; Akande, Wuraola Akande; Mikhalovska, Lyuba; James, Stuart (International Journal of Biomedical Materials Research, 2015-08-17)
    Poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) PHEMA monolithic cryogels were synthesized by free radical polymerization at -12°C for 18 hours and produced spongy, elastic and macroporous gel matrix. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) ...
  • Zhang, Yongguang; Bakenov, Zhumabay; Tan, Taizhe; Huang, Jin (MDPI, 2018-08-02)
    A gel polymer electrolyte was formed by trapping an optimized Na+/Zn2+ mixed-ion aqueous electrolyte in a polyacrylonitrile nanofiber polymer matrix. This electrolyte was used in a novel aqueous sodium-ion battery (ASIB) ...
  • Mikhalovsky, S. V.; Bershtein, Vladimir A.; Gun’ko, Vladimir M.; Karabanova, Lyudmila V.; Sukhanova, Tatiana E.; Yakushev, Pavel N.; Egorova, Larisa; Turova, Anna A.; Zarko, Vladimir I.; Pakhlov, Eugene M.; Vylegzhaninad, Milana E. (RSC Advances, 2013-05-30)
    Two sets of hybrid polyurethane–poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) semi-interpenetrating polymer network–nanooxide composites with 0.25 or 3 wt% nanosilica or nanoalumina functionalised with OH, NH2 or CHLCH2 groups were ...
  • Mir-Nasiri, Nazim; Siswoyo J, Hudyjaya; Ali, Md. Hazrat (Procedia Computer Science, 2018)
    The idea of having a compact and autonomous office or house window cleaning robot is quite simple and very attractive. This small window climbing robot with pneumatic suction cups should be able to move autonomously along ...
  • Banagar, Morteza; Maham, Behrouz; Popovski, Petar; Pantisano, Francesco (IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, 2016-04-01)
    Device-to-device (D2D) communications have recently emerged as a novel transmission paradigm in wireless cellular networks. D2D transmissions take place concurrently with the usual cellular connections, and thus, controlling ...
