Electromagnetism in LS-DYNA

This course provides an introduction to the Electromagnetics (EM) solver in LS-DYNA. The Maxwell
equations are solved in the Eddy-Current approximation suitable for cases, where the propagation
of electromagnetic waves in air (or vacuum) can be considered as instantaneous. The solver is coupled
with the solid mechanics and thermal solvers of LS-DYNA allowing the simulation and solution of
applications such as magnetic metal forming, welding, bending, induced heating, resistive heating
and so forth.

The course includes a presentation of the solver’s general principles and applications, a complete
keyword description for setting up an Eddy-Current problem, an introduction to the more advanced
features (Inductive heating problems, exterior magnetic field, magnetic materials and so forth)
as well as an advanced description of the available controlling tools to ensure a safe analysis.

Key electromagnetic concepts are reviewed throughout the course and a general knowledge about electromag-
netics is therefore appreciated but not mandatory.
