Steady State AC Magnetic line (3D) / point (2D) region


The line (in 3D) / point (in 2D) regions are:

  • either material regions:

    used to model filiform regions in the study domain

  • or non-material regions:

    used to impose boundary conditions (BC) inside or on the frontiers of the study domain

Material regions (filiform regions)

Filiform regions enable the modeling of regions of small cross-section.

The filiform regions are described in the same way as the massive regions; with in addition the cross-section of the region.

The following filiform region types are available for a 2D and 3D applications:

  • Magnetic * / in 3D
  • Coil conductor / in 2D
Note: * In 3D, the direction of the magnetic field for a magnetic region is imposed by Flux. The magnetic field is usually considered tangent to the line that models the filiform region.

Non-material regions

Non-material regions enable to impose the boundary conditions (BC).
