How to get force between two permanent magnets using ANSYS?

  1. May 15, 2010 #1

    I am working on a project which requires me to find the force between two permanent magnets. The configuration of the two magnets is variable, and they are of different geometries, so I thought the best way to do this would be by using ANSYS.

    I have never used the ANSYS magnetostatic module before, so I am very unsure as to how to use it. I imported the magnets' geometry into ANSYS from SolidWorks, but now don't know how to proceed (how to set up magnetic properties and generate a solution).

    Does anyone have experience with this software who can help me or direct me to good tutorials or guides? Alternatively, is there an easier way to do this that I'm missing (either by hand or with another, easier software)?

    Thanks in advance for your help!
