Computer Simulation of Wireless Induction?

  1. Nov 7, 2011 #1
    I was just wondering if anyone knew of software that would allow me to simulate magnetic induction.

    I'm researching into the effects distance and the number of windings has on the effect of transfer efficiency between two coils.

    I've seen lots of people mention Maxwell, but they seem to have discontinued their student version. I've used programs such as Tina and Simulink, but they only seem to let me do an ideal transformer, and presumably (i'm an engineer not a physicist :-/) there will be lot of flux lost through the air transfer, hence the use of an Iron Core.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
