Structure and Thermal coupling

The scope of the solver is not on­ly to solve the Maxwell equa­tions in the Ed­dy-cur­rent ap­prox­i­ma­tion but can al­so be cou­pled with the ther­mal and sol­id me­chan­ics solvers of LS-DY­NA in or­der to take full ad­van­tage of their ca­pa­bil­i­ties. All ma­te­ri­als avail­able in LS-DY­NA can there­fore be used in­de­pen­dent­ly of their elec­tro­mag­net­ic prop­er­ties. The ma­te­ri­als with strain rate de­pen­den­cy (ex: John­son-Cook) are par­tic­u­lar­ly well suit­ed for very fast de­for­ma­tion ap­pli­ca­tions such as mag­net­ic form­ing or weld­ing.
