Linking applications


It is possible to carry out a simplified computation of the electromagnetic and thermal states of a device by linking standard applications of Flux.


The user will carry out the linking of the two standard applications, i.e. will carry out two successive resolutions with two applications, as presented in the example below.

Example (3D)

Example: linking Electric Conduction / Steady Thermal

  • The first solving process with the Electric Conduction application (1) gives the current distribution.
  • The second solving process with Steady Thermal application (2) gives the temperature distribution.

    The power losses computed with application 1 are introduced as source of the problem in application 2.


Generally, the standard applications linking is used in order to determine the start up parameters (voltage, power, current, initial step time, frequency), before launching a coupled application, more expensive as far as computation time is concerned.
