Abstract

The FEMAX package for static and stationary electric and magnetic fields I.E. Lager, G. Mur Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Laboratory of Electromagnetic Research, Delft University of Technology, P.O. Box 5031, NL-2600 GA Delft, The Netherlands ABSTRACT A finite element package is described for computing stationary and static electric and magnetic fields in inhomogeneous media. A high efficiency and accuracy are obtained by formulating the problem directly in terms of the required field strength. The medium parameters inside the domain of com- putation can be both linear and nonlinear and they may be anisotropic, also. A combination of edge and nodal elements is used for obtaining an accurate expansion of the field strength throughout the domain of compu- tation. This is done such the conditions on internal surfaces of discontinuity in medium parameters, as well as along the outer boundary, can be mod- eled easily. Various post-processing facilities are available for examining the
