Finite Element Analysis of Metal Weapons in a Time-domain Transient Magnetic Field

By Prasanta Pati and Peter Mather


A method of secondary magnetic field analysis of metal objects in time-domain transient magnetic field is established by modification of finite element analysis. Secondary current distribution of complex metal geometries is analyzed at different time steps in a transient magnetic field environment. A unique sensor system is currently being designed using this analysis to identify the location of potentially dangerous metal objects
