Nitsche-Type Mortaring for Simulation of Electrical Machines
We will present a finite element program implementing the idea of Nitsche-type mortaring in the framework of simulating electrical machines. Using this method it is possible to split the domain into subdomains only connected via a function on the interface. From this approach we gain the advantage that adjacent meshes (e.g. rotor and air gap) do not have to fit together nodewise. The mortaring will be used on the interface between rotor and air gap as well as on the symmetry edges of the motor, since only a part of the machine is considered in the simulation due to motor symmetry.
