External magnetic field
It is now possible to set up a uniform external magnetic field. The three time dependant components can be set up through load curves. This external magnetic field is then applied on the conductor parts where induced currents are generated and the classic Eddy current problem is solved. This feature can for example be useful in cases where the user knows or has a good idea of the magnetic field generated by a coil on a workpiece. This way, he doesn’t have to build the whole coil which can save a lot of calculation time.
