Unformatted text preview: RC36) Input Listing: vm168.dat Test Case A nonferrous solenoid is wound with one layer of No. 26 enameled wire and carries a current I. Determine the magnetic flux density on the centerline at • the center of the coil • the end of the coil • at a point 5 inches from the end of the coil Figure 168.1 Magnetic Field Problem Sketch Geometric Properties = 7.5 in s = 5 in r = 0.5 in h = 6 in d = 0.216 Loading I = 0.5 A ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–373 VM168 Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes The number of turns is N = s/d = 5/.0216 = 231. Therefore, N x I = 115.5 Ampere-turns. Since no ferromagnetic materials are present, the field due to induced magnetization, Hm = 0, and thus no scalar potential is required. The total field can be determined from the numerical integration of the coil source field upon specification of the coil with the current source element (SOURC36). Since the field is symmetric, an arbitrary arc of 10° is chosen with an additional symmetry plane taken along the coil midspan....
