Why can I not calculate JXB in a SOLID117 conductor in ANSYS 9.0
as I did in 8.1?
Magnetic force calculation was made more accurate and easier to
do in ANSYS 9.0 through the use of the new EMFT command. No flags need
to be set before solution. Force are computed in POST1 when this command
is issued based on the selected nodes. All elements should be selected.
Here is a simple test of the new EMFT command used to calculate the forces
between two solid117 conductors with keyopt(1)=6.
It gives reasonable JXB forces.
vsel,s,,,1,,,1 ! to get nodes of first conductor
esel,all ! all elements should be selected
