We present an effective technique to solve eddy current problems in thin conductors of arbitrary topology by a boundary element method based on a stream function. By considering a mesh of the thin conductor, which we assume to be a surface (i.e., an orientable combinatorial two-manifold embedded in R-3), the aim of this paper is to introduce a novel technique to render the stream function single valued when the thin conductor is not topologically trivial.

Abstract

We present an effective technique to solve eddy current problems in thin conductors of arbitrary topology by a boundary element method based on a stream function. By considering a mesh of the thin conductor, which we assume to be a surface (i.e., an orientable combinatorial two-manifold embedded in R-3), the aim of this paper is to introduce a novel technique to render the stream function single valued when the thin conductor is not topologically trivial. In particular, a novel combinatorial algorithm to compute the appropriate cohomology generators in linear time worst case complexity is introduced, providing an effective and rigorous solution for the required topological preprocessing.
