Examples

We have the "simple" fields predicted by the 1st of Maxwell's equations, otherwise known as The Divergence Theorem and then complex timevarying fields such as those associated with Maxwell's 4th equation (Ampere's circuital law) which predicts the radio waves Hertz became famous for and things like Bremsstrahlung.

The TroutonNoble experiment did not work because it assumed the Lorentz force law applies to noncircuital charge motion, whereas it is empirically based on effects that demand such a circuital charge motion.

Heaviside wrestled with this Gvector, but dismissed it as an unnecessary and useless introduction of an auxiliary circuital flux.
Chapter 4 1990

Of interest in EM theory is the appearance of closed circuital fluxes of EM energy in a region, which has bothered a very great number of physicists and electrical engineers including Maxwell and Heaviside.
Chapter 4 1990

If this view is correct, then Heaviside (and other electrical physicists, subsequently) may again have discarded one part of electrogravitation  because, after all, in modern general relativity, gravitation primarily consists of a number of potentials, trapped energy density of vacuum constitutes a curvature of spacetime, and closed circuital fluxes of EM energy represent dynamic internal energydensity structures.

The experiment does not involve circuital charge motion.
