Abstract

An adaptive FEM for 3D magnetostatic problems involving non‐linear materials and permanent magnets is presented. The problems are formulated in terms of scalar potentials and discretized on a tetrahedral mesh using linear shape functions. Local error is estimated by approximately solving an independent differential problem in each tetrahedral element.
