This lecture is written primarily for the non-expert engineer or the undergraduate or graduate student who wants to learn, for the first time, the finite element method with applications to electromagnetics. It is also designed for research engineers who have knowledge of other numerical techniques and want to familiarize themselves with the finite element method. Finite element method is a numerical method used to solve boundary-value problems characterized by a partial differential equation and a set of boundary conditions. Author Anastasis Polycarpou provides the reader with all information necessary to successfully apply the finite element method to one- and two-dimensional boundary-value problems in electromagnetics. The book is accompanied by a number of codes written by the author in Matlab. These are the finite element codes that were used to generate most of the graphs presented in this book. Specifically, there are three Matlab codes for the one-dimensional case (Chapter 1) and two Matlab codes for the two-dimensional case (Chapter 2). The reader may execute these codes, modify certain parameters such as mesh size or object dimensions, and visualize the results. The codes are available on the Morgan a Claypool Web site at http://www.morganclaypool.com.Problems. 1.1 INTRODUCTION In this chapter, the finite element method (FEM) will be applied to an electrostatic ... Obtain the analytical expressions for the electric (or electrostatic) potential and the electric field in the region between the twoanbsp;...
