Question about how data is collected during magnetic force calculations

    • ewalks

      Hi, I'm simulating the magnetic and physical pressure applied to a tube placed inside a coil when a high current is discharged through the coil. The coil also uses a field shaper to direct the magnetic field to a concentrated spot on the tube. I get results for the magnetic pressure and the force calculations (x,y,z) on the tube.

      I'm just curious as to how it is calculated, specifically how each "step's" data is calculated. Is each parameter for each step solved at the same time? Is the magnetic pressure calculated first and then used to find the force on an object? Some of the numbers we got seemed a little off compared to what we calculated ourselves so I'm trying to get a better idea of the ANSYS simulation process.

      The picture is one of our simulations ran.
