New code Agros2D for 2D numerical solution of coupled problems is presented. This code is based on the fully adaptive higher-order finite element method and works with library Hermes2D containing the most advanced numerical algorithms for the numerical processing of systems of second-order partial differential equations. It is characterized by several quite(More)
Optimization of the process of induction clamping is presented, consisting in finding the optimum shape of the field coil. The objective function takes into account the required expansion of the bore of the clamping head. While the forward problem is, as a coupled task with nonlinear and nonstationary interaction of three physical fields (magnetic field,(More)
An electromagnetic valve for control of flow of electrically non-conductive liquids is proposed and modeled. The device contains only one movable part (a cylindrical plunger) whose movement is controlled by a secondary magnetic circuit with a high-parameter permanent magnet and current in the field coil. The paper presents its mathematical model that is(More)
—A device for electrostatic separation of triboelectri-cally charged plastic particles is modeled and optimized. Electric field in the system is solved numerically by a fully adaptive higher-order finite element method. The movement of particles in the device is determined by an adaptive Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method. The shape optimization of the electrodes(More)
