Re: compiling in a Mac

I ran into the same error message after compiling on linux ubuntu 16.04. The error was "ERROR:: InitializeElementDescriptions: elements.def not found" After some research I figured out that the guidance given in section 17.1 of ElmerSolver manual for setting up the shell variable ELMER_HOME were inc...

Re: Issue with currents computed by bSolver and MagnetoDynamics2DHarmonic

I assumed that Elmer would model the conductivity as continuous. To deal with this I had added a very thin zero conductivity layer next to the high conductivity case region. (See attached figure). I'm seeing non-zero currents at nodes far away from the high conductivity regions (nodes where all adja...

Issue with currents computed by bSolver and MagnetoDynamics2DHarmonic

I'm performing a 2D cylindrical coordinates simulation of a metal detector using MagnetoDynamics2DHarmonic solver. The simulation is basically working but there is a strange anomaly. bSolver is giving me non-zero currents in regions where the conductivity is zero. According to the models document th...
