I am the R&D manager at Verdun Anodizing. Verdun has been in business of anodizing of aerospace and military components for over 70 years.
I used EMS to simulate primary and secondary current distributions in our electrochemical cells using the Electric Conduction module.Using this tool, we succeeded in optimizing the setup of the electrochemical cells by studying various material of the electrodes and the bath parameters such as the acid concentration and temperature.A trial-and-error procedure would have taken us years to achieve the optimal design achieved using EMS. It was a well worth it investment.
A Lorentz force linear motion actuator was built to deliberately exhibit a highly nonlinear current for force relation even when the coil was completely immersed in the magnetic field. Magnets were arranged radially around the coil but only half the permissible number were included in order to generate a more complex actuator configuration to test the ability of the EMS electromagnetic finite element analysis software to handle more challenging magnetic path geometries. A detailed set of experiments were carried out on the actual actuator and a similar set of analyses were undertaken using the EMS magnetostatic electromagnetic finite element analysis software. EMS correctly accounted for the gross nonlinearities in the current to force measurements.Whitepaper
