  • The Perez-Diaz and Garcia-Prada expression gives the force due to the Meissner effect for any surface element of a superconductor in a
    magnetic field. This paper proposes an algorithm for the integration of
    this expression in a superconductor of any shape. The convergence of the
    algorithm has been checked with respect to the finite elements' size and
    has been compared to analytical solutions for simple geometries. The
    results showed good accuracy, whilst not requiring high specification
    computing technology.
