Steel keeper

This is an example of the steel keeper simulation, performed with QuickField software.

Problem Type:
Plane-parallel problem of DC magnetics.

Nonlinear permanent magnet A simulation of permanent magnet and a steel keeper in the air, performed with QuickField software. Steel Steel Magnet 10 cm 20 cm 40 cm 10 cm 20 cm 10 cm 10 cm

Relative permeability of steel μ = 1000;
Relative permeability of magnet μ = 1;
Permanent magnet coercive force Hc = 500 kA.

Calculate the mechanical force acting on the steel yoke.
