Induction Heating Processes

Part of the Scientific Computation book series (SCIENTCOMP)


The rest of this book is devoted to a presentation of mathematical modelling and numerical solution of some well known applications of low frequency electromagnetics (eddy current and magnetostatics) in industry. For each application, we present the set of equations that govern the process, give some mathematical results when they are known and present the numerical methods to solve the set of equations as well as a series of numerical experiments.
