Simple characteristics such as a dense mesh and large scale analysis models are required to handle phenomena caused by eddy currents on the heated bodies in induction heating analyses. An analysis environment is finally available because of the higher performance machines that are offered in recent years. However, work preparing analyses, such as measuring the material properties and current value of the heating coil, is necessary to run the analysis. Furthermore, many users have said they are unsure how to evaluate results when comparing the analysis results and actual results. This presentation proposes a flow for modeling and evaluating induction heating from qualitative to quantitative evaluation.
