Multiphysics Analysis of Electromagnetic Actuators (Solenoids)

Electromagnetic actuators, or solenoids, are devices that operate by producing magnetic fields to move an armature a desired distance at a desired force. They are used in applications such as fuel injectors, power distribution (interrupters, breakers, etc.), and various automotive, hydraulic and industrial applications.
