Electrostatic, electrical conduction, magnetostatic, and electromagnetic analysesPiezoelectric effect is the electromechanical interaction exhibited by some materials. This coupled electrostaticstructural response is modeled using piezoelectric analysis in Abaqus/Standard. In this procedure the electric potential is a degree of freedom and its conjugate is the electric charge. Coupled thermalelectrical conduction, with or without structural coupling, is modeled using electrical procedures. In these procedures the electric potential is a degree of freedom and its conjugate is the electric current. While transient effects are ignored in electrical conduction, thus making it steady state, thermal fields can be modeled either as transient or steady state. Magnetostatic analysis is used to compute the magnetic fields due to direct currents. It solves the magnetostatic approximation to Maxwell's equations. The magnetic vector potential is a degree of freedom in a magnetostatic analysis, and its conjugate is the surface current. Electromagnetic analysis is used to model the full coupling between timevarying electric and magnetic fields by solving Maxwell's equations. In such an analysis the magnetic vector potential is a degree of freedom and its conjugate is the surface current.
