Abstract

This paper estimates models of Engel curves for two household commodities, namely food and clothing in Turkey using LAD, M and LTS regressions beside OLS. Obtain results indicate that income elasticities of both food and clothing expenditures are smaller than one, in other words both food expenditure and clothing expenditure are compulsory expenditures. In the light of the obtained information, it can be said that tax applications on compulsory expenditures that mean vital needs shall be in a way that will impact the low income groups less

Abstract

In this work, three designs of textile antennas, namely, a rectangular microstrip patch antenna, annular slot antenna, and planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA), operating in the 2.45 GHz WLAN band were developed for smart clothing applications. Conductive textile, a copper-plated polyester fabric, was used for fabricating antenna radiators and grounds. An insulating neoprene fabric with a thickness of 4 mm and a permittivity of 1.5 was used for preparing the substrates. The textile patch antenna achieved a maximum gain of 5.96 dBi and a bandwidth of 4.6%. The annual slot antenna showed a moderate gain and bandwidth of 2.9 dBi and 13.1%, respectively. The PIFA achieved the widest bandwidth of 31% but the smallest gain of 1.2 dBi. Furthermore, the performance deterioration of the proposed antennas under various bending conditions was analyzed to evaluate their suitability for wearable applications. Moreover, two 2 × 2 patch and slot antenna arrays were assembled to increase gain and bandwidth. The measured results proved that the developed antenna designs provide superior performance.
