MATLAB-based Finite Element Programming in Electromagnetic Modeling

Özgün, Özlem
Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa
This book is a self-contained, programming-oriented and learner-centered book on finite element method (FEM), with special emphasis given to developing MATLAB® programs for numerical modeling of electromagnetic boundary value problems. It provides a deep understanding and intuition of FEM programming by means of step-by-step MATLAB® programs with detailed descriptions, and eventually enabling the readers to modify, adapt and apply the provided programs and formulations to develop FEM codes for similar problems through various exercises. It starts with simple one-dimensional static and time-harmonic problems and extends the developed theory to more complex two- or three-dimensional problems. It supplies sufficient theoretical background on the topic, and it thoroughly covers all phases (pre-processing, main body and post-processing) in FEM. FEM formulations are obtained for boundary value problems governed by a partial differential equation that is expressed in terms of a generic unknown function, and then, these formulations are specialized to various electromagnetic applications together with a post-processing phase. Since the method is mostly described in a general context, readers from other disciplines can also use this book and easily adapt the provided codes to their engineering problems. After forming a solid background on the fundamentals of FEM by means of canonical problems, readers are guided to more advanced applications of FEM in electromagnetics through a survey chapter at the end of the book. Offers a self-contained and easy-to-understand introduction to the theory and programming of finite element method. Covers various applications in the field of static and time-harmonic electromagnetics. Includes one-, two- and three-dimensional finite element codes in MATLAB®. Enables readers to develop finite element programming skills through various MATLAB® codes and exercises. Promotes self-directed learning skills and provides an effective instruction tool.


Finite Volume Method For Hyperbolic Conservation Laws On Manifolds
Okutmuştur, Baver (LAP LAMBERT Academic Publishing, 2017-03-01)
The purpose of this book is to lay out a mathematical framework for the convergence and error analysis of the finite volume method for the discretization of hyperbolic conservation laws on manifolds. Finite Volume Method (FVM) is a discretization approach for the numerical simulation of a wide variety physical processes described by conservation law systems. It is extensively employed in fluid mechanics, meteorology, heat and mass transfer, electromagnetic, models of biological processes and m...
Finite element modeling of electromagnetic radiation
Özgün, Özlem; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
The Finite Element Method (FEM) is a powerful numerical method to solve wave propagation problems for open-region electromagnetic radiation/scattering problems involving objects with arbitrary geometry and constitutive parameters. In high-frequency applications, the FEM requires an electrically large computational domain, implying a large number of unknowns, such that the numerical solution of the problem is not feasible even on state-of-the-art computers. An appealing way to solve a large FEM problem is to...
Monte Carlo analysis of ridged waveguides with transformation media
Ozgun, Ozlem; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Wiley, 2013-07-01)
A computational model is presented for Monte Carlo simulation of waveguides with ridges, by combining the principles of transformation electromagnetics and the finite methods (such as finite element or finite difference methods). The principle idea is to place a transformation medium around the ridge structure, so that a single and easy-to-generate mesh can be used for each realization of the Monte Carlo simulation. Hence, this approach leads to less computational resources. The technique is validated by me...
A new time-domain boundary element formulation for generalized models of viscoelasticity
Akay, Ahmet Arda; Gürses, Ercan; Göktepe, Serdar (2023-05-01)
The contribution is concerned with the novel algorithmic formulation for generalized models of viscoelasticity under quasi-static conditions within the framework of the boundary element method (BEM). The proposed update algorithm is constructed for a generic rheological model of linear viscoelasticity that can either be straightforwardly simplified to recover the basic Kelvin and Maxwell models or readily furthered towards the generalized models of viscoelasticity through the serial or parallel extensions. ...
A Transformation Media Based Approach for Efficient Monte Carlo Analysis of Scattering From Rough Surfaces With Objects
Ozgun, Ozlem; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (2013-03-01)
This paper presents a computational model that utilizes transformation-based metamaterials to enhance the performance of numerical modeling methods for achieving the statistical characterization of two-dimensional electromagnetic scattering from objects on or above one-dimensional rough sea surfaces. Monte Carlo simulation of the rough surface scattering problem by means of differential equation-based finite methods (such as finite element or finite difference methods) usually places a heavy burden on compu...
