Electromagnetic Simulation Seminar and Opera/Tosca update Seminar

9 May 2012

Kjell Johnsen Auditorium – Room 30-7-018

Electromagnetic Simulation Seminar
& Opera/Tosca update Seminar

By Cobham Technical Services – Vector Fields Software

Virtual prototyping using electromagnetic simulation software plays an important role in the design stage of many devices and the Opera software has been in use for this purpose at CERN for over a decade.

A technical seminar will take place concerning the latest developments in electromagnetic design, analysis and multi-physics applications for large scientific experiments.  Information will be presented on applications such as superconducting magnets and ion-beam sources.

The seminar will be presented by engineers/physicists from Cobham Technical Services – Vector Fields Software who develop the Opera program.  It is FREE to attend and is open to both current Opera software users and also those who wish to expand their knowledge and understand better the capabilities on offer.

Programme and Scope:

10:00 – 12:00
FE simulation of magnets

  • Modelling demagnetization & hysteresis
  • HT and LT SC magnets including quench protection
  • Magnet shielding
