Engineering Electromagnetics

Front Cover
Springer, 2000 - Technology & Engineering - 1231 pages
"This text not only provides students with a good theoretical understanding of the electromagnetic field equations, it also treats a large number of applications. In fact, no topic is presented unless it is directly applicable to engineering design or unless it is needed for the understanding of another topic. In electrostatics, for example, the text includes discussions of photocopying, ink-jet printing, electrostatic separation and deposition, paint spraying, and powder coating. In magnetism, the applications discussed include electric motors and generators, permanent magnets, nuclear magnetic resonance, magnetic recording, and electromagnetic braking. Magnetic forces, torque, and magnetic energy are discussed in the context of electric motors and transformers; the applications discussed include linear induction motors, electromagnetic propulsion, magneto-hydrodynamic power generation, and nondestructive testing of materials. The discussion of electromagnetic waves includes such applications as the use of electromagnetic waves for materials processing, microwave detection of substances, remote sensing of the earth and its resources, applications of new materials, and the use of so-called stealth materials in aerospace systems." "More than 300 fully worked examples and 700 problems and exercises help students clarify and test their knowledge."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This is one of the best books I've ever read in the field of applied electromagnetic. The examples and applications are so impressive. I recommend everyone who is interested in such field allocates time to read this book, and for professors who teach electrical engineering courses, especially electromagnetics, it is recommended to suggest this book because applications mentioned in this books widen students' views, and help them to consider the limits and opportunities in the field of EM to solve industrial problems carefully.
