Inheritance diagram of CircularLoopWholeSpace
class geoana.em.static.CircularLoopWholeSpace(radius=0.5641895835477563, current=1.0, **kwargs)#

Class for a circular loop of static current in a wholespace.

The CircularLoopWholeSpace class is used to analytically compute the fields and potentials within a wholespace due to a circular loop carrying static current.

Parameters
currentfloat

Electrical current in the loop (A). Default is 1.

radiusfloat

Radius of the loop (m). Default is \(\pi^{-1/2}\) so that the loop has a default dipole moment of 1 \(A/m^2\).

Attributes

current

Current in the loop in Amps

epsilon

Dielectric permittivity in F/m

location

Location of the dipole

mu

Magnetic permeability in H/m

orientation

Orientation of the dipole as a normalized vector

radius

Radius of the loop in meters

sigma

Electrical conductivity in S/m

Methods

cross_orientation(xyz)

Cross products between a gridded set of vectors and the orientation of the source.

distance(xyz)

Scalar distance from dipole to a set of gridded xyz locations

dot_orientation(vecs)

Dot product between the orientation of the source and a gridded set of vectors.

magnetic_field(xyz[, coordinates])

Compute the magnetic field for the current loop in a wholespace.

magnetic_flux_density(xyz[, coordinates])

Compute the magnetic flux density for the current loop in a wholespace.

vector_distance(xyz)

Vector distance to a set of gridded xyz locations.

vector_potential(xyz[, coordinates])

Compute the vector potential for the static loop in a wholespace.
