Riassunto analitico
This dissertation presents our contribution on the <br>field of applied electromagnetism. <br>Our work has mainly been focused on the design and modeling of devices exploiting magneto-mechanical properties (e.g. magnetic levitation (MagLev) systems, Electromagnetic Launchers (EML), electro-dynamic bearings). The numerical modeling of the problem has been designed through a low frequency integral formulation of the Maxwell equations coupled with the Newton Euler dynamics equations. The non-linear system has been solved wit different schemes, mainly based on predictor corrector approaches.<br>A C framework exploiting GPGPU capability (Nvidia CUDA) has been developed and validated by comparison with experimental results or FEM simulations. A lot of interest has also been posed to the design of innovative electro-mechanical devices, that have been deeply analysed and simulated by the developed numerical formulation.
