Determine the resulting force F on the conductors. Figure 188.1 Current Carrying Conductor Problem Sketch Material Properties µr = 1 µo = 4 π x 10-7 H/m Geometric Properties d = .010 m a = .012 m t = .002 m Loading I = 24 A Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes Due to the symmetric nature of the magnetic field, a 1/4 symmetry model is generated. The far-field boundaries are meshed with an infinite boundary element to model the unbounded field behavior. The lower order infinite ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–425 VM188 elements are meshed first so that the higher order plane elements will appropriately drop their midside nodes during meshing. Lorentz forces ( J × B) in the conductor are calculated for each element and are available from the post data file. Virtual work forces are also calcula...
