Quickfield Multi-Physics Software

QuickField™ is a very efficient Finite Element Analysis software package for electromagnetic, thermal, and stress design simulation with coupled multi-field analysis. It combines a family of analysis modules using the latest solver technology with a very user-friendly model editor (preprocessor) and a powerful post processor.

  • Build and solve problems of AC/DC magnetics, electrostatics, thermal, stress and coupled analysis in seconds
  • Supports 2D axysmetric and planar models - user selection of model accuracy
  • Fully integrated pre & post processing, material libraries
  • Ultra fast, fully automatic meshing algorithms - no fuss, one click meshes an entire model in seconds
  • Full colour plots and graphs, integral values and tabular output available at any time - simply point and click.

Quickfield is a native Windows® application, designed specifically for that platform. The software fully utilises the advantages of a modern operational environment. It is very compact, yet powerful, and can be used for many design applications.

Since Version 4.3 users gain the freedom of being able to develop their own custom-made programs using QuickField objects and functions. This technology, based on Automation (OLE Automation) is called ActiveField.

Quickfield Modules

QuickField consists of modules for particular analysis types. Each analysis package includes a model editor (preprocessor) and a post processor. Our solvers are based on the latest computational technology, and provide you with extreme efficiency.

Available Modules :

DC Magnetics - AC Magnetics - Electrostatics - Current Flow - Heat Transfer - Stress Analysis

Quickfield DC Magnetics

The DC magnetic module of QuickField™ is used for design and analysis of devices such as solenoids, electric motors, magnetic shields, permanent magnets, disk drives, and so forth.

  • Materials: Linear and non-linear permeabilities
  • Special utility for editing B-H curves
  • Permanent magnets with linear or non-linear demagnetisation curves
  • Superconductors
  • Distributed and concentrated currents
  • Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions
  • Special approximation functions for axisymmetric formulations that provide high precision near the axis of rotation
  • Results: magnetic flux density, field intensity, potential, permeability, energy, self and mutual inductances, magnetic forces, torques, and other integral quantities
  • Couplings: the magnetic forces can be used for stress analysis on any existing part (magneto-structural coupling)

Quickfield AC Magnetics

The AC magnetic module can be used for time harmonic eddy current analysis. For a given frequency, it can analyse the magnetic field caused by alternating currents and, vise versa, electric currents (eddy currents) induced by an alternating magnetic field. This package is ideal for designing induction heating devices, transformers, solenoids, electric motors, and many other types of inductors.

  • Materials: orthotropic permeability, current-carrying conductors with known current or voltage
  • Loads: voltage, total current, multiple current sources with different phases, current density, uniform external fields
  • Boundary conditions: prescribed potential values (Dirichlet condition), prescribed values for tangential flux density (Neumann condition)
  • Results: magnetic potential, current density, voltage, flux density, field intensity, forces, torques, Joule heat, magnetic energy, AC impedances, self and mutual inductances and other integral quantities.

Quickfield Electrostatics

The electrostatic module can be used to design and analyse a variety of capacitive systems such as fuses, transmission lines and so forth.

  • Anisotropic permittivity
  • Distributed and concentrated charges
  • Floating conductors
  • Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions
  • Results: Voltage, electric field, electric displacement, capacitance, electric gradients, forces, torques and other integral quantities
  • Couplings: the electric forces can be used for stress analysis on any existing part (electro-structural coupling)

Quickfield Current Flow

The current flow module can be used to design and analyse variety of conductive systems.

  • Anisotropic conductivity
  • Voltage and current density sources
  • Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions
  • Results: Voltage, current density, electric field, power losses, electric current through a surface, and other integral quantities
  • Couplings: power losses can be used as heat sources (Joule heating) for thermal analysis (electro-thermal coupling)

Quickfield Heat Transfer

The heat transfer module can be used to design and analyse many different electrical and mechanical systems.

  • Steady-state or transient formulation with arbitrary initial field distribution, non-linear specific heat and flexible time parameters
  • Non-linear or anisotropic properties
  • Distributed and concentrated heat sources
  • Heat sources as a function of temperature
  • Heat sources generated by electric power losses
  • Boundary temperature and heat fluxes
  • Boundary conditions with convective/radiative terms
  • Results: temperature, heat flux, thermal gradients, total heat loss on any given part, and other integral quantities

Quickfield Stress Analysis

The stress analysis module can be used to design and analyse many different mechanical and electrical components

  • Plane stress, plane strain, axisymmetric stress problems
  • Anisotropic elastic properties
  • Distributed and concentrated loadings
  • Thermal stresses, magnetic and electric forces
  • Various support conditions
  • Results: displacements, stress components, principal stresses, Von Mises, Treska, Mohr-Coulomb and Drucker-Prager criteria
