It is therefore necessary to research the influence of such objects on the radio wave propagation characteristics.
Isozaki constructs a mathematical foundation for wave propagation associated with the Maxwell equation, especially the scattering phenomenon.
The factors mentioned above are features affecting the nature of the wave propagation [4] in the waters of Lhoknga waters.
One critical issue that causes the uncertainty in determining the wave propagation mechanism is that the actual location of the OAE source is uncertain.
Model 1a exhibits characteristics of plane wave propagation up to about 1200Hz where 3D acoustic wave propagation starts.
Since the calculation of Maxwell's equations is difficult and the necessary parameters (permeability [mu] and permittivity [epsilon]) are often not available, there are a number of studies in the literature [5-10] to approximate a radio wave propagation without adopting Maxwell's equations.
Earthquake, rockburst, and other disasters are scientific issues about stress wave propagation in jointed rock masses [4].
The total transmittance of wave propagation along the forward and backward directions for x polarization and y polarization can be defined as [47]: [T.sup.f(b).sub.x] = [[absolute value of ([t.sup.f(b).sub.xx])].sup.2] + [[absolute value of ([t.sup.f(b).sub.xy])].sup.2] and [T.sup.f(b).sub.y] = [[absolute value of ([t.sup.f(b).sub.yy])].sup.2] + [[absolute value of ([t.sup.f(b).sub.yx])].sup.2], respectively.
The method of matriciant allows studying wave propagation in anisotropic medium with various mechanical and physical properties [7].
A wave would travel back by reflection along a rock bolt once it has reached the end of the bolt, during which the consecutive waveforms recorded at one location on a bolt can be used to analyze the characteristics of wave propagation [8].
The first work on wave propagation in an elastic tube was presented by Moens and Korteweg at the end of the 19th century [10].
AWE was founded in 1998 as a spin-off from the University of Stuttgartand the main focus has been the development of the WinProp Software Suite for wave propagation and radio network planning.
