This letter proposes an intra-cell partial spectrum reuse (PSR) scheme for cellular OFDM-relay networks. The proposed method aims to increase the system throughput, while the SINR of the cell edge users can be also promoted by utilizing the PSR scheme. The novel pre-allocation factor γ not only indicates the flexibility of PSR, but also decreases the complexity of the reuse mechanism. Through simulations, the proposed scheme is shown to offer superior performances in terms of system throughput and SINR of last 5% users.
