Unformatted text preview: around the object of interest) Magnetostatic Flux density Solutions may be color coded. 2D FEM solution for a magnetostatic configuration (lines denote the direction of calculated flux density and colour - its magnitude) Each FEA program may come with an element library, or one is constructed over time. Rod elements Beam elements Plate/Shell/Composite elements Shear panel Solid elements Spring elements Mass elements Rigid elements Viscous damping elements Many FEA programs also are equipped with the capability to use multiple materials within the structure such as: Isotropic, identical throughout Orthotropic, identical at 90 degrees General anisotropic, different throughout...
