Magnetic Stiffness of an Axial Magnetic Bearing in 3D
Application ID: 27761
The model illustrate the technique to calculate the magnetic stiffness in a 3D geometry of a permanent magnet axial magnetic bearing. The Magnetic Fields physics is used to model the bearing and compute the magnetic forces. The Deformed Geometry and Sensitivity physics are used to compute the magnetic stiffness.
This model is featured and explained in much greater detail in the following blog post: Modeling Magnetic Bearings in COMSOL Multiphysics.
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.
