Numerical Methods for Ferromagnetic Plates

We present two numerical methods for the simulation of ferromagnetic phenomenons in a metallic plate, with or without holes. First we briefly recall the physical model we use for describing the ferromagnetic phenomenon. This model is based on the use of a scalar potential while other models rather use a vector potential as in  or . Next we present the discretization methods we use. We then apply these methods on the simple test-case of a thin ferromagnetic plate placed in front of a rectilineal electric conductor. We show the various obtained results: magnetic field on a line perpendicular to the plate and relative permeability on a given line in the plate. Finally we illustrate our results with an industrial device.
