Induction Heating Ansoft Maxwell

  1. Jun 29, 2014 #1

    Im triying to simulate the eddy current into a cylindrical bar of aluminium. The idea is make a coil of copper with a current of 120A and put the workpiece into there. I'm triying to simulate this situation with tutorials and reading in different places. I make a region of the coil and put the current in that Area. I supposed that the current is fluxing into the conduction path(the coil) but the eddy current is only generated in the top of the workpiece and not in the bottom. The region that i put the current is in the top.

    i don't know how can fix this.

    i put my maxwell file from dropbox.
