  • Carbon-Footprint-Based Solid Waste Management

    Life cycle assessment (LCA) provides a legitimate framework to quantify various environmental impacts for solid waste management (SWM) systems in which life cycle impact assessment (LCIA) may help reach a single comparable number with the aid of normalization and weighting factors. Yet, the complexity of impact assessment and interpretation for a myriad of environmental impact categories at different scales are still difficult for waste managers and the general public to understand. This chapter provides a descriptive definition of global-warming potential (GWP) in terms of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This is followed by a methodological discussion of solid waste management (SWM) under carbon constraint. The case study presented here explains a series of GWP calculations using an LCA software package to demonstrate a real-world LCIA in a typical SWM system with GHG emissions. The chapter concludes with a discussion on the application potential of carbon footprint-based SWM.

  • Parabolic Equation Method

    Parabolic equation method (PEM) represents one-way propagation and is widely used in two-dimensional (2D) radio wave/ground wave propagation modeling. It takes the earth's curvature, atmospheric refractivity variations, nonflat terrain scattering, and boundary losses into account. This chapter reviews both split-step PE (SSPE)- and finite element method (FEM)-based numerical solution approaches and introduces MATLAB-based simple routines. Canonical test cases are presented and systematic comparisons between the SSPE and FEMPE methods are made, followed by calibration of both the SSPE and FEMPE tools against analytical exact (reference) solutions. Finally, the chapter introduces several simple MATLAB scripts in 2D propagation modeling.

  • ATMOSPHERIC PROPAGATION

    Communication links that propagate through the atmosphere encounter a number of effects that distort the received signal making detection and parameter estimation difficult and prone to errors. This chapter examines the impact of multipath reflections from a smooth Earth followed by a case study and discusses signal refraction in the troposphere and ionosphere and diffraction from irregular surfaces with examples of irregular terrain and urban propagation losses. The geometry for determining the propagation paths for line of sight (LOS) and multipath rays has been modeled under various simplifying assumptions involving a flat‐Earth approximation and a spherical Earth with receivers at sufficiently long ranges. The propagation loss through the troposphere and over terrain modeled by Longley and Rice and the irregular terrain model (ITM) simulation program is used to evaluate the losses under a variety of user specified conditions. Land mobile communications through a satellite must consider the loss from the terrain surrounding the mobile location.

  • Femix Virtual Propagation Package

    This chapter discusses how the groundwave propagation problem over a non‐smooth spherical Earth with an impedance BC and a radially dependent atmosphere, excited by a vertical electric dipole located near the Earth's surface, requires the solution of a 3D EM wave equation in spherical coordinate. A novel FEMPE‐based software tool (FEMIX) is introduced for the analysis and visualization of surface‐wave propagation over the irregular Earth's surface through a homogeneous and an inhomogeneous atmosphere. The FEMIX propagator uses the FEM‐based standard PE, with the accuracy of the numerical computations depending on the discretization. Several parameters, such as the frequency, source beam‐ width, source tilt, source height, terrain profile, refractivity variations, need to be considered. The LOAD and SAVE buttons are used to load and record the irregular terrain data. New irregular terrain data are defined for each path on the bottom figure of the right part by using the number of points, range, and height values by pressing the Locate Points button.
