Until MRI compatibility has been confirmed, the metallic or magnetic component of this device should be considered a contraindication to MRI due to possible overheating, tissue expander displacement, and possible demagnetization of the localization marker.
Another major feature in the latest release of Opera-3d is that the scope of the surface impedance boundary condition (SIBC) has been widened and is now available for use in transient electromagnetic analysis including Demagnetization and Motional Analysis.
Ferrite magnets are superb in damp, wet or marine environments and exhibit high resistance to demagnetization and corrosion.
Low temperatures were achieved by adiabatic demagnetization of Cerous Magnesium Nitrate.
Thermal demagnetization (80[degrees]C-560[degrees]C) was carried out using the MAVACS (Magnetic Vacuum Control System; Pnhoda et al.
Moreover, the magnitude of the stator flux (and respectively the maximum admissible current amplitude) has to be kept inside a hysteresis bound around a time-invariant reference value such that demagnetization and saturation are avoided.
During an MRI, Synchrony's magnet freely rotates and self-aligns within its titanium housing, greatly reducing implant torque and the risk of demagnetization during MRI scans.
In all of these applications, it is important for the designed permanent magnet to be of high strength, resistive to corrosion, and resistive to demagnetization due to excessive heat.
7 show that the load of in-wheel motor is more than 110 kg or the revolving speed of inwheel motor is more than 1800 r/min, and the temperature of winding and stator can be more than 100 [degrees]C, which can lead to the overheating of in-wheel motor, the burning out of winding insulation layer, the failure of Hall sensor and the demagnetization of permanent magnet, and even seriously the in-wheel motor to stall.
In a magnetic refrigeration cycle, magnetization corresponds to adiabatic compression and demagnetization corresponds to adiabatic expansion.
