Deformation of an Iron Plate by Magnetic Force
Application ID: 102811
A strong permanent magnet is placed close to a clamped thin plate made of iron. The magnetic force causes the plate to be deflected. This example studies the plate's elastic deformation and stress. The deformation of the plate has an influence on the distribution of the magnetic field. This effect is accounted for using the moving mesh in the air surrounding the plate. The model is set up using the Magnetomechanics, No Currents multiphysics interface.
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:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- AC/DC Module and
- either the Acoustics Module, MEMS Module, or Structural Mechanics Module
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.
