flux density

1. (spectral flux density or, strictly, spectral power flux density) Symbol: S . A measure of the strength of the signal received from a discrete source of emission. The dimensions of flux density are energy per unit time per unit bandwidth per unit area. The unit is the jansky.

So this part concentrates on current density distribution and magnetic flux density distribution graphs at different gap distances and the voltage frequency is fixed at 400 Hz.
have developed a novel tube-like PM combining a series of shorter PM rings gradually changing their shapes and remanent flux density, but this design requires an elaborated preparation for PM rings; if the GMM in the actuator changes its size, the PM rings have to be redesigned accordingly [11].
