*MAGNETIC PERMEABILITY

Keyword type: model definition, material

This option is used to define the magnetic permeability of a
material. There are no parameters. The material is supposed to be isotropic. The constant may be temperature
dependent. The unit of the magnetic permeability coefficient is the unit of
force divided by the square of the unit of electrical current. In SI-units
this is N/A or Henry/m. The magnetic permeability may be viewed as the
product of the relative magnetic permeability (dimensionless) with the
permeability of vacuum .

Following the magnetic permeability constant the user is supposed to define
the domain for which this material is used. In an electromagnetic calculation
there are three domains:

- the air, which is the P-domain (domain 1)
- the bodies, which is the A,V-domain (domain 2)
- that part of the air, which, if filled with body material, ensures that
the bodies are simply connected; this is the A-domain (domain 3). If there is only one
body and if it is such that
it is naturally simply connected the A-domain is empty.

For more details the reader is referred to the section on electromagnetism.

Following line:

- .
- number of the domain
- Temperature.

Repeat this line if needed to define complete temperature dependence.

Example:
*MAGNETIC PERMEABILITY
1.255987E-6,2

tells you that the magnetic permeability coefficient is 1.255987 10, independent
of temperature (if SI-units are used this is the magnetic permeability of
copper). The domain for which this material is defined is the A,V-domain.
