# Mechanical analysis context: about

## Environment

**The mechanical analysis context of Flux will no longer be available in the near future; all the features of this context are fully available in the Data import/export context. The mechanical analysis context remains available in advanced mode.**

## Necessary condition

The context is accessible under the following conditions :

- Project defined as magnetic application (transient, steady state, steady state AC)
- If the project is in magnetic transient, the solving scenario should not contain geometric parameter.

## Valid domains

This context is accessible for the following Flux models :

- 2D plan
- Skewed
- 3D

## Main steps

In the table below the main steps to generate a file of forces are described.

Step | Action |
---|---|

1 | Create the computation support |

2 | Compute forces |

3 | Check result by displaying arrows |

4 | Export forces |

## Support and forces computation

As presented in the introduction, three computation methods exist. So there are three support types associated to the computation methods:

Computation |
Computation of surface magnetic forces on Flux mesh | Computation of surface magnetic forces on rotating machine imported mesh | Computation of volume Laplace forces on Flux mesh |

Corresponding support |
Support for magnetic surface forces computation | Support defined by an imported mesh from rotating machine | Support for Laplace volume forces computation |
