One-Sided Magnet and Plate
Application ID: 213
Permanent magnets with a one-sided flux have many uses. The one-sided flux behavior is obtained by giving the magnet a magnetization that varies in the lateral direction.
This model shows this technique to model a cylindrical one-sided permanent magnet. A special technique to model thin sheets of high permeability material was used to model a thin metal plate next to the magnet. This circumvents the difficulty of volumetric meshing of thin extended structures in 3D.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:AC/DC Module
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.
