Eddies Current!

  1. Jul 13, 2014 #1
    Hey guys I'm looking for. Some more info on eddies current. I understand how it works but all the examples I see use flat objects (coin shaped). Will eddies current still work in shapes like a sphere or cone?
    Thank you,

    Yes, eddy currents can exist in any geometry; the analysis is more difficult, and usually requires numerical methods.
