Hi guys,

I am trying to evaluate the forces that a solenoid is subject to when flowing a current through it.

I basically modeled the solenoid as a cylinder with a specific thickness, and the current is making flow through the section of the solenoid.

Now it comes the problem. I am trying to evaluate the force, by simply adding the Maxwell parameter and also evaluating the JxB in the calculator and integrating the components along the entire volume.

What I obtain is basically a low force as being a symmetric system the integral should give zero.

I am more interested in the local forces, for example along the height in order to have a better understanding of the force.

Does anyone know a tool that allows me to have local values for the forces?

Cheers,

Alessio
