2D Magnetostatic Simulation of EMB Using Ansys Maxwell — Lesson 5

In this lesson, we will cover the steps to create a 2D model of an electromagnetic brake (EMB) system from the previously created 3D model. We will discuss how to identify symmetry in the model and use it to create a 2D model.

We will compare the results of both the 3D and 2D model of the EMB system to see how 2D analysis of a geometry drastically reduces the number of mesh elements and simulation time while providing similar results.
