Superconducting bowl shield with the optional layer of mu-metal

This is an example of the superconducting bowl shield simulation, performed with QuickField software.

Problem Type: axisymmetric problem of DC magnetics.

Geometry:
Mu-metal cylinder shield
D = 32 cm, t1 = 1 cm, t2 = 1 cm

Given:
Relative magnetic permeability of mu-metal μ = 10000,
External field B = 277 mT.

Problem:
Determine the shielding factor for the single layer superconducting bowl shield and for the bowl covered with the second layer of mu-metal.

Solution:
Uniformal external magnetic field was defined by assigning a non-zero vector magnetic potential distribution on the simulation area boundary.

Results
Magnetic field strength distribution in case of the single layered superconducting bowl shield.
