Book Description

Engineers do not have the time to wade through rigorously theoretical books when trying to solve a problem. Beginners lack the expertise required to understand highly specialized treatments of individual topics. This is especially problematic for a field as broad as electromagnetics, which propagates into many diverse engineering fields. The time has come to find a middle ground.

The Handbook of Engineering Electromagnetics links theory to specific applications with an integrated approach to areas such as wireless communications, fiber optics, microwaves, radar, materials science, and even biomedical engineering. This book not only provides the necessary formulas, figures, and tables, but also the underlying theory and insight needed to formulate and solve real-world engineering problems. A team of international experts discusses fundamental concepts such as Maxwell equations, static fields, electromagnetic induction, transmission lines, waveguides, and electromagnetic compatibility. They also explore specific technologies, various numerical techniques used for computer-aided solutions, biological effects and safety standards, biomedical applications, and measuring electromagnetic properties of biological materials.

With tables and graphs integrated into the discussion, each chapter is a nearly self-contained oasis of practical and theoretical problem-solving information for individual applications, with references directing you to more in-depth information. Appendices provide brief compilations of key constants and units as well as a tutorial on vector analysis and coordinate systems.

Reviews

"This book bridges the gap between traditional e-mag books and the specialized handbooks…gives a review of electromagnetic theory in the context of applications, provides key terms and equations, teaches how to apply the theory to real engineering problems, and provides references to other works… definitely a worthwhile addition to your library."
-IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Vol. 22, No. 5, September-October 2006

"[Chapters are] accompanied with practical engineering applications and useful illustrations, as well as a good selection of references. … This book will … provide a useful resource for many engineers working in applied electromagnetics … ."
- The IEE Online, 2004

"This handbook fills the niche of covering many industrial electromagnetic applications. University professors would also find this book useful for adding practical applications to field theory lectures and homework. This book provides an excellent tour of the practical side of electromagnetics."
- IEEE Microwave Magazine, March 2005

"…The bio-electromagnetics chapters are particularly well equipped with references, having more than 100 each and collectively accounting for around 40% of more than 900 references cited in the handbook.

"…Those chapters that are devoted to areas that I am less familiar with, but currently have a need to address, have certainly been valuable to me. This book will therefore provide a useful resource for many engineers working in applied electromagnetics, particularly those in the early stages of their careers."
-Alastair R. Ruddle, Consultant Engineer at Mira Ltd., Warwickshire, UK

"Succinct application-oriented treatment, presenting formulas, tables, and graphs."
