The EM module in LS-DYNA introduces electrical current into solid conductors and computes the associated magnetic field, electric field, and induced currents. The EM solver is coupled with the structural mechanics solver (the Lorentz forces are added to the mechanics equations of motion) and the structural thermal solver (the ohmic heating is added to the thermal solver as an extra source of heat). The electromagnetic fields are solved using a finite element method for the conductors and a boundary element method for the surrounding air/insulators, making an air mesh unnecessary.
In this class, you will get an overview of the Eddy current solver capabilities. You will get familiar with the concepts associated to FEM/BEM methods, how they translate into advantages for engineering applications and how to optimize the analysis and look for clues when problems occur.
