Self-Demagnetization of a Cylindrical AlNiCo Magnet
Application ID: 57891
Soft permanent magnets like AlNiCo are easily demagnetized if handled incorrectly. This is a demonstration of how to model the self-demagnetization of a cylindrical AlNiCo magnet when moved out of its associated/protective magnetic circuit. The modeling is performed in three steps:
- The soft magnet protected by the magnetic circuit.
- The self-demagnetization of the soft magnet when moved into free air.
- The linear recoil model when moved back into the magnetic circuit.
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.
