Novel and Efficient Simulation Approach for Effective Permeabilities of Randomly Ordered two-phase Compounds
Sprache des Titels:
This paper introduces a novel simulation approach for the magnetic properties of two-phase randomly ordered compounds. In industry, materials such as ferrous powder mixtures or metallic granulates are very often used as raw materials. Hence, their material characteristics are of utmost interest for material manufacturers in order to guarantee high quality standards. Typically, many parameters such as composition, inclusion shape, and the characteristics of the constituents affect the macroscopic physical behavior of such materials. In particular, the resulting permeability of multi-phase and randomly ordered materials exhibits a strong variation despite constant compounds. For the design and optimization of measurement setups, efficient simulators are necessary to estimate the effective permeability and its fluctuation range of a huge number of arrangements. In addition to the basic concept of the novel simulation method, this article presents some possible evaluations of the simulated results and their dependencies on the properties of the constituents. In the last century, a large number of different mixing formulas have been established in literature, which are summarized and compared to the simulation results. Finally, the simulated magnetic characteristics are evaluated with finite element simulation of a comparable particle arrangement.
