Mike -
Apologies for not replying sooner. I didn't think anyone would be interested in my post. I will try what you suggest and reply.
Regards,

2 tests fail when running Runtests

Hi. I just compiled Elmer and when running runtests 2 of the tests did not pass: (1) blocklineast3 (2) particleadvector2 I am attaching the log files. If someone could help me out I would appreciate it. :D Thanks. I am going to make a complete list of instructions including pitfalls of how to compil...

Re: Application fields of Elmer

Hi. I am interested in solving dynamic electromagnetics coupled with current and there are also circuits connected to the magnets. As I understand it Elmer does not have a circuit solver so I will have to try and write one. :D

I have been very impressed so far. I just compiled it onto my system.

WhitneyAV 3D coupled current emag of a coil

This shows the elmer analysis of a coil embedded in a square volume of air with the following dimensions: I=12.5 amps L=62.5 mm coil DIA=60 mm wire DIA=12 mm Number of turns=2.5 See attached images also. Results of Bz on axis are accurate as compared to other FEA codes and formula. Unfortunately I c...

Re: WhitneyAVSolver crash

Hi Juha, I had a lot of problems with those files above and beyond having second order elements. However I rewrote the elmer ansys macro for Ansys Workbench SImulation (which does not have areas available) and thus now I can import arbitrary geometry using 504 Whitney AV elements. Also I already kno...

WhitneyAVSolver crash

I managed to create a magnetic field around a wire in elmer by using test case mgdyn_bh as an example. (just changed the coil to be air) After analyzing the same model in Ansys the field intensity is within 2% at a radial distance of .004 m from the center. Also there is good agreement with formulas...
