MRI Shielding Optimization in Opera – 15 minute overview

In this 15-minute presentation we show the benefits Opera Optimizer offers when used in conjunction with magnetostatic analysis for MRI shielding applications. We also demonstrate the benefits of the new “thin plate” boundary condition, which increases efficiency without compromising accuracy, and how Opera provides the ability for MRI shielded room designers to customize the Modeller [...] Posted in Magnets,Magnets Paper,MRI / NMR Magnets

NDT Device Design in Opera – 15 minute overview

Non-destructive testing or evaluation (NDT or NDE) is a process used in industry to evaluate properties of a material or a system without damaging it. Some of the uses of NDT are flaw detection and evaluation, leak detection, location determination, dimensional measurements, structure and Microstructure characterization, estimation of mechanical and physical properties, stress (strain) and [...] Posted in NDT Papers

Simulation of ion beam devices using Opera FEA – 10 minute video overview

The Charged Particle Module calculates the interaction of charged particles in electrostatic and magnetostatic fields. Using the FE method to solve Maxwell’s equations for the steady-state case in a discretized model, it provides a self-consistent solution including the effects of space-charge, self-magnetic fields and relativistic motion. Applications include the design of X-ray tubes, electron guns [...] Posted in Charged Particle Devices,Electron & Ion Beam Lithography,Ion Beam Sources
