Current
data CurrentDistribution Source
A current distribution is a line current (current through a wire), a surface current,
a volume current, or a combination of these.
The VectorField
describes a surface current density
or a volume current density.

MultipleCurrents [CurrentDistribution]  combination of current distributions 
Magnetic Field
bField :: CurrentDistribution > VectorFieldSource
The magnetic field produced by a current distribution. This is the simplest way to find the magnetic field, because it works for any current distribution (line, surface, volume, or combination).
:: Current  current (in Amps) 
> Curve  geometry of the line current 
> VectorField  magnetic field (in Tesla) 
Magnetic field produced by a line current (current through a wire).
The function bField
calls this function
to evaluate the magnetic field produced by a line current.
bFieldFromSurfaceCurrentSource
:: VectorField  surface current density 
> Surface  geometry of the surface current 
> VectorField  magnetic field (in T) 
Magnetic field produced by a surface current.
The function bField
calls this function
to evaluate the magnetic field produced by a surface current.
This function assumes that surface current density
will be specified parallel to the surface, and does
not check if that is true.
:: VectorField  volume current density 
> Volume  geometry of the volume current 
> VectorField  magnetic field (in T) 
Magnetic field produced by a volume current.
The function bField
calls this function
to evaluate the magnetic field produced by a volume current.
Magnetic Flux
magneticFlux :: Surface > CurrentDistribution > DoubleSource
The magnetic flux through a surface produced by a current distribution.
