Transient Model of Signal Propagation
Application ID: 104721
This model is used to demonstrate the solution to a classic brainteaser in electromagnetics. A long loop of wire is connected to a source and a receiver, which are placed 1 meter apart. The objective of the model is to compute how long it takes for the receiver to sense when the source is turned on, and to compute the current over time. Four-fold symmetry is used to reduce the problem size. For a full description of this model, see: How Long Does It Take an Engineer to Turn on a Light Bulb?
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.
