Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would like to calculate the force between a finite coil and a nearby metal plate. A pulsed current is supposed to flow into the magnetic coil, which will generate a magnetic field near the coil. Due to this magnetic field, an Eddy current will be produced in a nearby metal plate and finally there will be a repulsion between the coil and the plate.

I was able to calculate the magnetic field on the metal plate, but I am not sure how to calculate the force between the coil and the plate. Can we actually calculate the Eddy current? Is there easier way to estimate the force without calculating the Eddy current? Any suggestion would be welcome.

Thanks.
