  A Convex Energy-Function and Partial BEM-FEM Decoupling in Nonlinear Magnetostatics
Friedemann Groh (ISG Stuttgart)

A conjugate gradient method to solve nonlinear magnetostatic problems is presented. The related energy-function is convex. Its gradient is a composition of a simple nonlinear map and an orthogonal projection. This projection maps arbitrary 3d-vector fields on the space of flux density fields which are induced by currents on the given magnetic domain. To represent this fields, an orthogonal decomposition into surface current fields and confined domain fields is applied. The potential of domain fields vanishes at the material boundary. Hence, one can evaluate the projection in two steps. At first, the domain field part is determined by a boundary value problem. Using its normal derivatives at the boundary, one finally constructs the surface current of the remaining part.
