## 1 General description

Quoting from the comment header on the solver:

Solver for the magnetic field generated by permanent magnets.

A Poisson's equation for the magnetic scalar potential psi is solved from which the magnetic field intensity H and magnetic flux density B are obtained. The paramagnetic particle force field (H dot grad(H)) is optionally available.

The source code for the solver can be found in the folder `applications/solvers/electromagnetics/magneticFoam`.
