Computing Intercepted Flux
Application ID: 47831
This example model demonstrates four different approaches for computing the integrals of fields over arbitrarily placed geometries that can be re-positioned without having to re-solve the model.
This approach is also useful if you want to integrate the results of a model over different sub-regions that you do not want to include in your original computational model.
The example of computing mutual inductance between coils by computing intercepted flux is used to illustrate these approaches.
This model is explained in detail in the following blog post: How to Postprocess Fields over Arbitrary Geometries.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
