Electric Field Between Concentric Cylinders
Application ID: 105501
This introduction model creates a simple model of the electrostatics problem with two concentric cylinders of infinite length, which is commonly found in textbooks. Since there is an analytical solution to this problem, the model can be used to compare theory with numerical results from the simulation. Two cases are considered here, one with fixed potentials on both cylinders, and the other with a surface charge density on one cylinder and a fixed potential on the other.
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.
