The purpose of this book is to provide an up-to-date introduction to the time-domain finite element methods for Maxwell’s equations involving metamaterials. Since the first successful construction of a metamaterial with both negative permittivity and permeability in 2000, the study of metamaterials has attracted significant attention from researchers across many disciplines. Thanks to enormous efforts on the part of engineers and physicists, metamaterials present great potential applications in antenna and radar design, sub-wavelength imaging, and invisibility cloak design. Hence the efficient simulation of electromagnetic phenomena in metamaterials has become a very important issue and is the subject of this book, in which various metamaterial modeling equations are introduced and justified mathematically. The development and practical implementation of edge finite element methods for metamaterial Maxwell’s equations are the main focus of the book. The book finishes with some interesting simulations such as backward wave propagation and time-domain cloaking with metamaterials.
This book gives an introduction to the finite element method as a general computational method for solving partial differential equations approximately. Our approach is mathematical in nature with a strong focus on the underlying mathematical principles, such as approximation properties of piecewise polynomial spaces, and variational formulations of partial differential equations, but with a minimum level of advanced mathematical machinery from functional analysis and partial differential equations. In principle, the material should be accessible to students with only knowledge of calculus of several variables, basic partial differential equations, and linear algebra, as the necessary concepts from more advanced analysis are introduced when needed. Throughout the text we emphasize implementation of the involved algorithms, and have therefore mixed mathematical theory with concrete computer code using the numerical software MATLAB is and its PDE-Toolbox. We have also had the ambition to cover some of the most important applications of finite elements and the basic finite element methods developed for those applications, including diffusion and transport phenomena, solid and fluid mechanics, and also electromagnetics.
Shelving Guide: Electrical Engineering Since the 1980s more than 100 books on the finite element method have been published, making this numerical method the most popular. The features of the finite element method gained worldwide popularity due to its flexibility for simulating not only any kind of physical phenomenon described by a set of differential equations, but also for the possibility of simulating non-linearity and time-dependent studies. Although a number of high-quality books cover all subjects in engineering problems, none of them seem to make this method simpler and easier to understand. This book was written with the goal of simplifying the mathematics of the finite element method for electromagnetic students and professionals relying on the finite element method for solving design problems. Filling a gap in existing literature that often uses complex mathematical formulas, Electromagnetics through the Finite Element Method presents a new mathematical approach based on only direct integration of Maxwell’s equation. This book makes an original, scholarly contribution to our current understanding of this important numerical method.
Written by specialists of modeling in electromagnetism, this book provides a comprehensive review of the finite element method for low frequency applications. Fundamentals of the method as well as new advances in the field are described in detail. Chapters 1 to 4 present general 2D and 3D static and dynamic formulations by the use of scalar and vector unknowns and adapted interpolations for the fields (nodal, edge, face or volume). Chapter 5 is dedicated to the presentation of different macroscopic behavior laws of materials and their implementation in a finite element context: anisotropy and hysteretic properties for magnetic sheets, iron losses, non-linear permanent magnets and superconductors. More specific formulations are then proposed: the modeling of thin regions when finite elements become misfit (Chapter 6), infinite domains by using geometrical transformations (Chapter 7), the coupling of 2D and 3D formulations with circuit equations (Chapter 8), taking into account the movement, particularly in the presence of Eddy currents (Chapter 9) and an original approach for the treatment of geometrical symmetries when the sources are not symmetric (Chapter 10). Chapters 11 to 13 are devoted to coupled problems: magneto-thermal coupling for induction heating, magneto-mechanical coupling by introducing the notion of strong and weak coupling and magneto-hydrodynamical coupling focusing on electromagnetic instabilities in fluid conductors. Chapter 14 presents different meshing methods in the context of electromagnetism (presence of air) and introduces self-adaptive mesh refinement procedures. Optimization techniques are then covered in Chapter 15, with the adaptation of deterministic and probabilistic methods to the numerical finite element environment. Chapter 16 presents a variational approach of electromagnetism, showing how Maxwell equations are derived from thermodynamic principles.
A systematic introduction to partial differential equations and modern finite element methods for their efficientnumerical solution Partial Differential Equations and the Finite Element Methodprovides a much-needed, clear, and systematic introduction tomodern theory of partial differential equations (PDEs) and finiteelement methods (FEM). Both nodal and hierachic concepts of the FEMare examined. Reflecting the growing complexity and multiscalenature of current engineering and scientific problems, the authoremphasizes higher-order finite element methods such as the spectralor hp-FEM. A solid introduction to the theory of PDEs and FEM contained inChapters 1-4 serves as the core and foundation of the publication.Chapter 5 is devoted to modern higher-order methods for thenumerical solution of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) thatarise in the semidiscretization of time-dependent PDEs by theMethod of Lines (MOL). Chapter 6 discusses fourth-order PDEs rootedin the bending of elastic beams and plates and approximates theirsolution by means of higher-order Hermite and Argyris elements.Finally, Chapter 7 introduces the reader to various PDEs governingcomputational electromagnetics and describes their finite elementapproximation, including modern higher-order edge elements forMaxwell's equations. The understanding of many theoretical and practical aspects of bothPDEs and FEM requires a solid knowledge of linear algebra andelementary functional analysis, such as functions and linearoperators in the Lebesgue, Hilbert, and Sobolev spaces. Thesetopics are discussed with the help of many illustrative examples inAppendix A, which is provided as a service for those readers whoneed to gain the necessary background or require a refreshertutorial. Appendix B presents several finite element computationsrooted in practical engineering problems and demonstrates thebenefits of using higher-order FEM. Numerous finite element algorithms are written out in detailalongside implementation discussions. Exercises, including manythat involve programming the FEM, are designed to assist the readerin solving typical problems in engineering and science. Specifically designed as a coursebook, this student-testedpublication is geared to upper-level undergraduates and graduatestudents in all disciplines of computational engineeringandscience. It is also a practical problem-solving reference forresearchers, engineers, and physicists.
Non-standard finite element methods, in particular mixed methods, are central to many applications. In this text the authors, Boffi, Brezzi and Fortin present a general framework, starting with a finite dimensional presentation, then moving on to formulation in Hilbert spaces and finally considering approximations, including stabilized methods and eigenvalue problems. This book also provides an introduction to standard finite element approximations, followed by the construction of elements for the approximation of mixed formulations in H(div) and H(curl). The general theory is applied to some classical examples: Dirichlet's problem, Stokes' problem, plate problems, elasticity and electromagnetism.
