MagNet version 7.1, from Infolytica, will be available in mid-spring 2010. The latest version will enable engineers to simulate the magnetization of a permanent magnet and offers expanded multicore support and other new features. MagNet v7.1 will be available for PC’s running Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and 7.
MagNet v7.1 will allow the magnetization process to be simulated. The magnetic field strength inside the permanent magnet component will be determined by the magnetization pattern and source current in the magnetizing coils. The result will be a permanent magnet for which each point inside will have a different recoil loop depending on the flux density that it has reached during the magnetization process.
The permanent magnet can be then used as a component in an electromagnetic device, such as a motor, for which further simulations can be performed as to study the performance based on the magnetized state that was stored from the previous simulation.
The first release of MagNet v7 introduced powerful multicore solving capabilities, which allows designers to take full advantage of their dual, quad or 8-core processors to get even faster results from the market leading electromagnetic field simulation software. Many new multicore features will be added in v7.1. More details on these improvements will be available closer to the projected release of mid-spring 2010.
