Unformatted text preview: ted via specification of virtual displacements (MVDI). A third method of obtaining the force on a body is through the use of the Maxwell stress tensor. Forces in this manner are obtained from a surface integral (line integral in 2-D analysis) defined using the path calculation capabilities in POST1 and macro FOR2-D. Flux lines are displayed via the macro PLF2-D. The applied source current density is calculated as I/at = 2A/(12 x 2) x 10-6 m2 = 1 x 106 A/m2. To ensure that a surface integral for force calculations will yield acceptable results, a fine mesh is used for area 6 in the region of the surface integral path.
