Description

An update of popular first edition of Finite-Difference Time-Domain Method in Electromagnetics with MATLAB® Simulations (2008), this book has been completely revised to incorporate advanced techniques and applications.

The Finite-Difference Time-Domain Method in Electromagnetics with MATLAB® Simulations, 2nd edition has been expanded to include 5 entirely new chapters and several modified sections to cover advanced topics including; Total Field/Scattered Field Formulation, Dispersive Material Modeling, Analysis of Periodic Structures, Nonuniform Grid and Graphics Processing Unit Acceleration of Finite-Difference Time-Domain Method.

This latest edition follows a step-by-step process that will allow readers to build competence and confidence in developing complete working codes for the design and analysis of various antennas and microwave devices. By presenting the fundamental techniques of the FDTD method at a graduate level, this book is able to take readers from a conceptual understanding to actual programme development.

The Finite-Difference Time-Domain Method in Electromagnetics with MATLAB® Simulations, 2nd edition also contains a number of useful features for readers including; full derivations for final equations, 3D illustrations to aid in visualization of field components and fully functional MATLAB® code examples.

Topics covered include:

  • the finite-difference approximation of the differential form of Maxwell’s equations
  • the geometry construction in discrete space, including the treatment of the normal and tangential electric and magnetic field components at the boundaries between different media
  • the outer-boundary conditions treatment
  • the procedures for the appropriate selection of time and spatial increments
  • the proper selection of the source waveform
  • the correct parameters for the time-to-frequency-domain transformation
  • the simulation of thin wires
  • the representation of lumped passive and active elements in the FDTD simulation
  • the scattered versus total field formulations
  • the definition and formulation of near and far zone sources
  • the use of graphical processing units for accelerating the FDTD simulations.

This book is part of the ACES Series on Computational Electromagnetics and Engineering.
