Abstract:

Motion of a conductor relative to a magnetic field distorts the field. This paper considers a cylindrical slug moving in a two-dimensional magnetic field, represented by the vector potential A sub 0 theta, where the partial derivative of A sub 0 with respect to theta 0. Maxwells equations are solved for the distorted potential A theta in the form of a rapidly converging series A A sub n. The A sub ns are given in a form suitable for evaluation by a digital computer. The nonequivalence of the apparently analogous problem of a stationary slug in a time-varying field is noted and discussed.
