## Microstrip Transmission Line

## Microstrip Transmission Line

A shielded electrical microstrip transmission line is fixed to a substrate and placed in a shielded container of air. The simulation applies a known voltage to the strip to calculate the resulting capacitance and compares this with the theoretical result. The problem assumes symmetry in the lengthwise direction so that …

## Stress Distribution in a Solenoid

## Stress Distribution in a Solenoid

This multiphysics model examines how magnetic forces give rise to stresses in a long thick cylindrical solenoid. A current density of 106 A/m2 is running through a wound coil with 1 cm inner to 2 cm outer radii. The material of the coil is assumed to have a modulus of elasticity of 1.075⋅1011 N/m2 and Poisson’s …

## Inductance in Parallel Wires

## Inductance in Parallel Wires

This example calculates the inductance between parallel wires. Two 1 m wires with 4 mm radius 1 A current are placed 0.5 m apart in a large domain of non-conducting air or vacuum. The inductance is computed with both using the magnetic field energy and flux linkage, and compared against the analytical solution L = …

## Conducting Sphere

## Conducting Sphere

This verification example considers a perfectly conducting sphere placed between two charged capacitor plates. An axisymmetric solution for the electrostatic potential is compared with a full 3D one, and verified against the analytical solution U(xi) = E0*(r3/xi2 - xi), where the electrical field is the potential …

## Resistive Heating in a Tungsten Filament

## Resistive Heating in a Tungsten Filament

This example models resistive Joule heating where the resulting current from an applied electric potential will heat a thin spiral shaped Tungsten wire, such as can be found in incandescent light bulbs. The filament reaches an equilibrium temperature where the internal heat generation is balanced by radiative heat loss …
