Electromagnetic Force Verification Series
Application ID: 55871
In this set of verification models and associated documentation, the accuracy of electromagnetic force calculations is investigated. Using various techniques, the total force and torque on a rigid body is determined and compared to analytical models.
Using fillets, advanced meshing and exterior force-probe surfaces the accuracy is greatly increased. The boundary element method (BEM) and the finite element method (FEM) are compared for several mesh sizes. A parametric sweep is used to investigate mesh convergence for both BEM and FEM.
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.
