Included in this package are the Solidworks file of the proposed axial gap electrical hub motor, several graphical representations of the performance of a similar design, as well as, some hand written electromagnetic calculations used to choose the values of the design variables we considered. The program Maxwell3D was used to perform our dynamic, electromagnetic analysis. Due to technical issues with the program, we were unable to run the RNxprt module within the program which allows for sophisticated hub motor design and performance analysis. However, using other 3D components we were still able to design the rotor, magnets, stator slots, and windings, and eventually run a dynamic analysis. It must be noted, however, that the Solidworks model included in this package was designed using thorough research and handwritten calculations, as the program did not have the capacity to run the simulations without crashing. The design we used was too complex for any machine at MIT that runs Maxwell3D, and consequentially, we could not run our exact design in the simulator without a crash. However, we did run a similar, albeit simpler, model and from this we
