- Four System Concept Definition (SCD) contractors to the National Maglev Initiative (NMI) developed conceptual designs of maglev systems in 1991--1992. The objective of the work reported here was to perform independent calculations of the magnetic forces and fields of these four systems to assess the reasonableness'' of the results presented to the government. Commercial computer software was used for computing forces in the system employing nonlinear ferromagnetic materials and for some calculations of induced eddy current effects in finite-sized systems. Other cases required the use of models developed at ANL and verified by experiment, or in a few cases, new computer programs that have not been validated by experiment. The magnetic forces calculated by the contractors were found to be credible in every case evaluated. The stray fields were also found to be in reasonable agreement with those calculated by the contractors, but, for lack of spice, are not reported here.
