Description

Fundamentals of Applied Electromagnetics is intended for use in one- or two-semester courses in Electromagnetics

 

Widely acclaimed both in the U.S. and abroad, this authoritative text bridges the gap between circuits and electromagnetics material. Coverage begins with transmission lines, leading students from familiar concepts into more advanced topics and applications. A student-friendly approach, full-color figures and images, and a set of interactive simulations will help students develop a deeper understanding of electromagnetic concepts and applications.

Features

  • Early Introduction of Transmission Lines: Transmission lines constitute a natural bridge between electric circuits and electromagnetics. By introducing transmission lines early, students can use familiar concepts to learn about many of the properties of wave propagation in a guided structure.
  • UPDATED Real-world Applications: Expanded Technology Briefs connect electromagnetic fundamental concepts to their countless real-world engineering and scientific applications.
  • UPDATED Hands-on Simulations: A set of 10 additional interactive simulation modules, bringing the total to 52 web-based simulation modules, allow the user to interactively analyze and design transmission line circuits; generate spatial patterns of the electric and magnetic fields induced by charges and currents; visualize in 2-D and 3-D space how the gradient, divergence, and curl operate on spatial functions; observe the temporal and spatial waveforms of plane waves propagating in lossless and lossy media; calculate and display field distributions inside a rectangular waveguide; and generate radiation patterns for linear antennas and parabolic dishes.
    • Students can use these valuable learning tools on their own, or instructors can incorporate them into their lecture materials and homework assignments.
    • The multiple window feature of electronic displays makes it possible to design interactive modules with “help” buttons to guide the student through the solution of a problem when needed.
    • Video animations can show how fields and waves propagate in time and space, how the beam of an antenna array can be made to scan electronically, and examples of how current is induced in a circuit under the influence of a changing magnetic field.
  • Mathematical Explanations of Physical Concepts: Emphasis is placed on using the mathematics to explain and clarify the physics, followed by practical examples intended to demonstrate the engineering relevance of physical concepts.
  • ENHANCED Visualization: Enhanced full-color figures and images efficiently convey core concepts.  
  • NEW/UPDATED Review: New/updated end-of-chapter problems provide more opportunities for review.
  • Reference: The bibliography features current references to help students delve deeper into particular concepts.
