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, excitation, etc., and each backed by a real laboratory device, on which measurements can be made.

Problem 2 [1] of the TEAM workshops for eddy current code comparison is a  conducting cylinder sphere in a uniform magnetic field (in the Y direction). The cylinder is modelled here as a very long 3D part. The field is spatially uniform but varies with a given frequency. The objective is to measure the magnetic flux amplitude and phase inside and outside the cylinder at different instants and compare to the analytical solution and the frequency Eddy current solver is used.
