# Description

TEAM (Testing Electromagnetic Analysis Methods) represents an open international working group aiming to compare electromagnetic analysis computer codes. TEAM Workshops are meetings of this group. A series of TEAM Workshops was started in 1986 and has been organized in two-year rounds, each comprising a series of ”Regional” workshops and a ”Final” Workshop, as a satellite event of the COMPUMAG Conference. The TEAM problems consist in a list of test-problems, with precisely defined dimensions, constitutive laws of materials, excitations, etc., and each backed by a real laboratory device, on which measurements can be made.

The TEAM 1 problem consists of a conducting cylinder of finite length [1] placed in a uniform magnetic field. The magnetic field decays exponentially with time. The main objective of the problem is to calculate the total circulating current in the cylinder at various locations (Z=0 m and Z = 0.5 m) as well as the Total Power Loss.
