Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) When conducting body are network (BAN) measurements in an anechoic chamber, characteristics of pyramid absorbers might have influenced to the on-body propagation signals. In this paper, the simulation approach,
based on the frequency-dependent finite-difference time-domain (FD2TD) method, is employed to investigate the effects of the on-floor pyramid absorbers (as they are closer to human body). The received E-field signals with various combinations of transmitter-receiver directions and on-body links are recorded and compared to those obtained from the conventional model (without wave absorbers). The simulation results show that when source is moved relatively closer to the on-floor absorbers, the E-field signals are affected with large discrepancy (greater than 10 dB) at some frequencies, receiver locations, and certain orientation of transmitter and receiver.
