Abstract

This paper presents an efficient method to calculate the magnetic forces on bodies in contact. The forces are computed through local application of the virtual work principle on degenerated airgap elements. These results are compared with those from different models and validated with measurements on a permanent magnet setup. Not only is this technique very accurate, but also reduces the computational burden related to the problematic meshing of thin layers.
