Mu-metal cylinder shield for the static magnetic field shielding

This is an example of the mu-metal cylinder shielding simulation, performed with QuickField software.

Problem Type: axisymmetric problem of DC magnetics.

Mu-metal cylinder shield
D = 10 cm, L = 10 cm.

Relative magnetic permeability of mu-metal μ = 10000,
External field B = 0.5 T.

Determine the shielding factor for axial and transverse field direction.

Two problems were simulated: axissymmetric (mu_metal_rz.pbm) for the axial magnetic field and plane-parallel (mu_metal_transverse.pbm) for the transverse magnetic field. Uniform external magnetic field was defined by assigning non-zero vector magnetic potential on the simulation area boundary.
