The 13th COMPUMAG Conference on the Computation of Electromagnetic
Fields (July 2-5, 2001) was complemented – during the day immediately after
the Conference – by a TEAM Workshop and Application Forum. The aim of
the forum was to encourage and facilitate discussion on application problems
in numerical simulations of electromagnetic devices. The TEAM Workshop
and Application Forum were held in a very pleasant place: the VVF of Evian.
TEAM is the acronym for ‘‘Testing Electromagnetic Analysis Methods’’ and
was established to validate the effectiveness of numerical techniques, based on
developed benchmark problems. Existing ‘‘open’’ problems, as well as newly
proposed ones, were discussed during the TEAM Workshop in Evian.
Together with the TEAM Workshop, an Application Forum was organized.
During an oral and a poster session, 25 papers related to industrial applications
of the numerical field computation were presented. Only papers dealing with
numerical methods were considered. The objective of the forum was to show
the impact of electromagnetic computation on the design of new industrial
The authors of accepted papers were invited to submit an extended version
for possible publication in COMPEL. These extended versions underwent a
new peer review process in accordance with the rules of COMPEL. A selection
of 13 papers have been accepted and are presented in this issue.
