Solves a coupled electromagnetic‐mechanical problem ‐ that of a cantilevered conductive plate in crossed steady and time‐varying magnetic fields ‐ by using a semi‐analytical method and an eddy current model. Assumes that the magnetic flux variation induces two electromotive forces to the plate; one due to the time‐varying magnetic field and the other to the plate movement in the steady magnetic field. Considers two equivalent LR circuits and notes that the superposition of their currents yields the total circulating current in the plate. Couples this electromagnetic model to the one‐dimensional beam bending model, adopted for the structural analysis of the problem and derives the system of the coupled electromagnetic‐mechanical equations. Calculates analytically some of the parameters involved in these equations so that the numerical computation of the remaining unknowns is very rapid. Concludes that the results are in agreement with the experiment and with results obtained by numerical methods treating, in three dimensions, the electromagnetic aspects of the problem. Notes that the fully numerical methods are very much CPU time consuming.
