2-D Infinite Boundary Elements (INFIN9) Input Listing: vm188.dat Test Case
Two rectangular conductors, separated by centerline-to-centerline distance d, are carrying equal out-of-plane
currents, I. 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

elements are meshed first so that the higher order plane elements will appropriately drop their midside nodes
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...
