Mushroom electrodes

This electrode system consists of two arbitrarily positioned electrodes in 3D space. The geometry model is created in CAD system and then imported to QuickField in STEP format. 3D electrostatic analysis shows the electric field distribution around the mushroom shaped electrodes.

Problem Type: 3D electrostatics.

Geometry: 3D import.
