Abstract: A method of computation based on the finite element method was used to solve axisymmetrical electromagnetic wave propagation problems directly in the time-domain. The finite element method, employing first order triangular elements, was used to generate a system of second order linear differential equations. The system of differential equations was solved for the magnetic field using a suitable differential equation solving algorithm written in the course of this work. The method was used to model several situations involving axisymmetrical radiating structures directly in the time domain and the results compared well with the published data. Situations involving pulses, which are of particular interest to EMI/EMC field, were successfully studied. Conclusions were drawn on the suitability of the method in modeling radiated emissions from printed circuit board configurations, under the influence of transient exciting fields.
