Engineering design consultants offering engineering analysis resource to the manufacturing, engineering and scientific sectors

Magnetic Field Simulation

Our magnetic field simulation experience includes 2d and 3d magnetic and electric field modelling, including static, time-harmonic, and transient problems. We have applied the full range of modelling techniques to a wide range of magnetic field simulation applications.

Best Solution - Capabilities - Magnetic Field Simulation

Magnetic Field Simulation Services

We always look for the most efficient magnetic field simulation approach, so, for example, for 3d problems we’ll not waste time with elaborate 3d models if we can first deliver some good initial insight with a 2d approximation.  We are also experts in the automation of finite element analysis, with benefits such as:

  • Efficient optimisation and parameter sweeps
  • Efficient extraction of post-processed information
  • Supply of results data in easy-to-use formats
