With the rapid expansion of sensors, actuators, electric motors and other electronic devices within automotive, aerospace, consumer products and most other industries, mechanical engineers are increasingly facing electromagnetic as well structural and fluid-related design challenges. In response, there has been significant development and growth in the use of finite element methods to simulate the electromagnetics performance of products, both in isolation as a single-physics task and also as part of a multiphysics solution.
Consequently, users of structural FEA and CFD software are now increasingly likely to be asked to review and perhaps undertake low frequency electromagnetics simulations during the design of electro-mechanical products.
Furthermore, they may work with colleagues involved in the simulation of high-frequency electromagnetics problems associated with antenna, RF identification and high speed digital applications.ds to simulate the electromagnetics performance of products, both in isolation as a single-physics task and also as part of a multiphysics solution.
Focusing on low frequency applications, the seminar introduced the use of electromagnetic simulation through a number of case studies, covering both single and multiple physics. There was also discussion on the different software tools and approaches required for low frequency and high frequency problems.
