The authors discuss techniques in the modelling of electromagnetic fields using finite difference time domain (FDTD) methods applied to 80×86-based PCs or limited memory computers. Electrical modelling of structures is currently carried out mainly in the frequency domain using empirical methods or by treating structures as two-dimensional objects. Until recently the application of finite difference methods were applied to supercomputers such as the Cray XMP and Cray II. The power of modern workstations and microcomputers offer large storage area, large memory capacity and fast CPU times. Thus it is now possible for full time domain simulations to be carried out on complex structures on base model workstations and microcomputers

Areas of Expertise

Electronic information now plays a vital role in almost every aspect of our daily lives. So the need for a secure and trustworthy online infrastructure is more important than ever. without it, not only the growth of the internet but our personal interactions and the economy itself could be at risk.
Information Visualisation
Information visualisation is the use of enhanced Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) to communicate and interact with complex data sets such as social networks, multiattribute tables, and financial data. Pages of text and numbers are not the most effective way to communicate or understand information.
