Kinematic coupling: principles


The kinematic module of Flux enables the study of the displacement of a moving part of a device determined by mechanical forces (due to springs, friction, gravity, …), and electromagnetic forces (generated by magnets, coils, …). We deal in this case with the magneto-mechanical coupling (or studies with kinematic coupling ).

It can be used for the numerical modeling of devices, such as motors, electro-valves, switches and so on.

The kinematic models available in Flux and the general operating principle of the kinematic coupling are detailed in this chapter.
