The study of electromagnetic radiation (EM) can be divided into two distinct areas: full
solution of Maxwell's Equations relevant to the specific boundary conditions in a
special general case and into application of EM radiation that results in modern life
e.g. medicine, telecommunication, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) etc. The
reader should have a specific scientific background and must be familiar with the
fundamental ideas of EM theory for the first area. Basic understanding of applying the
radiation techniques in modern life is needed for the second.
Lecture Engineering electromagnetics: Time – Varying fields and Maxwell’s equations presents the following content as: Faraday’s law, displacement current, Maxwell’s equations in point form, Maxwell’s equations in integral form, the retarded potentials.
The use of intelligent materials which are capable of reacting to external stimuli is growing
in the field of textiles. Conductive materials, metals as well as conducting polymers, are
already being used in many textile applications, like antistatic materials, electromagnetic
interference shielding, heating, transport of electrical signals, sensors etc.
