Worked Examples in Engineering Field Theory, Fuller, A.J. Baden
17 Fuller, A.J. Baden Worked Examples in Engineering Field Theory
Oxford, Pergamon Press, 1976, 0080181430 / 9780080181431 Ex Library Hard Cover Very Good No Jacket 
Ex-library copy with the usual stamps and markings. Interior pages clean and unmarked; tight binding. 321 pages. Small tear at top of spine. This book provides a summary of the same theory covered in another book by the same author, titled Engineering Field Theory, together with a large number of worked examples and worked solutions. The first part of the book develops the concept of flux starting with electric flux and proceeding to applications in gravitation, ideal fluid flow, and magnetism. The second part introduces the concept of potential, again starting with electrical potential, and proceeds to applications in gravitation, electric conduction, fluid flow through permeable media, conductive heat transfer, ideal fluid flow, and magnetism. Attention is given to static fields, and although there is a chapter on electromagnetic induction, time -varying fields are not included. The book has 104 diagrams, 145 worked examples, and 244 problems with their worked solutions. 112932
