Hey guys, So I'm interested in the application of an eddy current brake system as a high intensity shock absorber of some sort. The system would consist of permanent magnets concentrated on a stationary, non ferromagnetic metal. If a sudden, intense force were to act upon the non ferromagnetic metal, how effective would the magnets be at slowing it down and stopping it? Would it be stopped almost immediately? As stated above, the force would be sudden and violent, so the metal would want to accelerate quickly. I know that there are many factors that will effect the outcome (magnet strength, metal thickness, etc.) and calculating the retarding force of an eddy current brake at high speeds is a difficult task, but in general what kind of behavior should I expect? Any and all input would be much appreciated. Thank you.
