Abstract

A new interactive graphical user interface for 3D FE simulation of electromagnetic devices S. Coco', A. Laudani', S. Pulvirenti* & M. Sergi' 'Dipartimento Elettrico, Elettronico e Sistemistico Universita di Catania, Italy *ST Microelectronics, Catania, Italy Abstract In this paper the authors present a new interactive Graphical User Interface designed and developed for the 3D Finite Element (FE) simulation of electromagnetic devices under the Windows 95/98 OS Differently from other interfaces, dedicated mainly to result restitution, this Graphical User Interface aims at facilitating the management of all the various aspects of a simulation session. These range from input of geometries for the FE mesh generation to FE model processing and output postprocessing. The Graphical User Interface is based on a window presentation supported by suitable pop-up menus The device model is built by selecting and positioning an appropriate number of available geometrical objects (primitives
