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:
