ECE 551: Acoustic & Electromag Waves

Principles of oscillations, radiation, and propagation of waves in acoustics and elctromagnetics for bounded and unbounded media. Introduction to the derivation of the wave equation from Maxwell's equations in electromagnetics and vibration theory in acoustics and the application of the wave equation to wave propagation in SONAR and RADAR environments. Examples include acoustic and electromagnetic propagation in air and ocean environments, waveguides and optical fibers, transducers and antennas, radiation and reception of signals, dispersion, phase and group velocity, attenuation, reflection, refraction, and scattering.
