Abstract

Comparison of boundary elements and transformed finite elements for open magnetic problems J.F. Remacle, A. Nicolet, A. Genon & W. Legros Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Liege, Monfe/tore -5W This text presents research results of the Belgian programme on Inter university Poles of Attraction initiated by the Belgian State, Prime Minister's Office, Science Policy Programming. The Scientific responsibility is assumed by its authors. ABSTRACT The modelling of open problems, i.e., with an exterior domain of infinite extent, requires special techniques in order to keep the size of the problem limited. Among the most interesting ones are the boundary element (BE) method and the finite element (FE) transformation method. In this paper the two methods are compared as well from the computational efficiency point of view as from the accuracy (inside the problem and for the far field) point of view.
