Axisymmetric capabilities

The axi-sym­met­ric fea­ture has been de­vel­oped in or­der to sim­pli­fy some cas­es and to save some cal­cu­la­tion time. The elec­tro­mag­net­ic 2D axi-sym­met­ric fea­ture is al­ways cou­pled with the 3D ther­mal and struc­tur­al solvers. The Elec­tro­mag­net­ic forces and Joule heat­ing are cal­cu­lat­ed in 2D along the mid-plane of the axi-sym­met­ric parts (See side Fig­ure) and are re­port­ed by sim­ple ro­ta­tions for cou­pling with the 3D me­chan­ic and ther­mal. A fu­ture ob­jec­tive is to cou­ple 2D axi-sym­met­ric parts with clas­sic 3D elec­tro­mag­net­ic parts.
