  • Accurate and reliable electromagnetic modeling codes, which may be specific or general purpose, help Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory carry out its research. However, a need for a three-dimensional coded prompted the development of a finite element code. MAXWELL3 is a general electromagnetic modeling code (solves the differential Maxwell equations in the time domain) allows arbitrary geometrical shapes for simulation regions. The finite element technique was chosen over the finite difference technique because of the boundary-conforming discretization of the former. This paper focuses on some of the techniques used to make 3D finite elements tractable in electromagnetics. Sample models are presentedmore » to illustrate some of the effects certain techniques, e.g., a free space boundary, have on the solution. 4 refs., 3 figs.« less
  • Electromagnetic forces due to eddy currents strongly influence the design of components for the next generation of fusion devices. An effort has been made to benchmark two computer programs used to generate transient electromagnetic loads: SPARK and EddyCuFF. Two simple transient field problems were analyzed, both of which had been previously analyzed by the SPARK code with results recorded in the literature. A third problem that uses an ITER inboard blanket benchmark model was analyzed as well. This problem was driven with a self-consistent, distributed multifilament plasma model generated by an axisymmetric physics code. The benchmark problems showed good agreementmore » between the two shell-element codes. Variations in calculated eddy currents of 1--3% have been found for similar, finely meshed models. A difference of 8% was found in induced current and 20% in force for a coarse mesh and complex, multifilament field driver. Because comparisons were made to results obtained from literature, model preparation and code execution times were not evaluated.« less

  • We review very briefly a few recent highlight results from Jefferson Lab concerning nucleon Form Factors and Generalized Parton Distributions for which data with unprecedented precision and phase space coverage have be obtained these past few years. Along with new theoretical developements, these data allow to make some nucleon imaging in terms of partonic degrees of freedom in both momentum and space dimensions.
