1. Electromagnetic forces can be calculated in Maxwell and these can be used to compute sheer stress at the rotor using Ansys mechanical coupling.

2. No, In Maxwell 2D xy-plane is for the magnetic fields and Z is for assigning the current direction. Adjust the model such that the current direction falls in the Z -direction. If  not, the model might not be axisymmetric and requires Maxwell 3D analysis.
