Predefined computations
Definition: reminder
Predefined computations are computations of global quantities * dependent on the activated physic application.
It can be a question of:
 the magnetic force F_{m}, magnetic torque Γ_{m}, magnetic energy W_{m}, etc. in case of a magnetic application
 the electrostatic force F_{e}, electrostatic torque Γ_{e}, electrostatic energy W_{e}, etc. in case of a electric application
 the heat flux, etc. in case of a thermal application
Magnetic applications: principles
Use
The predefined calculations can be carried out in two ways:
 directly: by the command Predefined calculations in the Advanced* menu
 indirectly: by using a sensor
Predefined computations
The predefined computations (energy, force, torque, etc.) are presented in the table below. They are dependent on activated physical application.
Computations  Description

Magnetic force / Electrostatic force  volume / face / line region  
Magnetic torque / Electrostatic torque  volume / face / line region

Predefined computations and IB
To compute on the entire domain:
if there is an infinite box, then the computation takes it into account, the quantities are computed “to the infinity”.
Predefined computations and symmetries / periodicities
In the presence of symmetries/periodicities:
computations are performed for the part of the device represented in the computation domain, except the computation of Flux through a coil conductor, which takes into account the symmetries / periodicities (see § Multiplying coefficient for computation of flux through coils).
Storage
predefined calculation is stored as an entity in the tree of the general data in the entity type Result of calculation under the root of the Postprocessing * repertory
