Is there any software on metals that can predicts orbital or induced currents in metals in the presence of a magnetic field or electromagnetic waves?

1 Answer 1


I found couple of tools online. Here I collate the ones I think are relevant:

  • MEMEP3Dtool: Three-dimensional (3D) electro-magnetic modeling tool for superconductors and normal conductors using the Minimum Electro-Magnetic Entropy Production (MEMEP) variational principle. (1)

  • MaxFEM: This paper shows examples of how to use MaxFEM for analysis of eddy currents. (2)

  • QuickField: Here is an example to simulate eddy currents in a liquid metal on the QuickField website. Quickfield has a free "student" edition. More info here.
