APPENDIX A
MUTUAL INDUCTANCE OF TWO COAXIAL COILS

This program computes the mutual inductance of a pair of coaxial circular coils as a function of the two radii and their axial separation (see tables 2-4). All units are MKS. The geometry of the coils is shown below:

2 Load data card containing con-
stants into secondary for evalua-
tion of elliptic integrals (all
dimensions in m).

3 Enter first coil radius r ENT -
4 Enter second coil radius R ENT -
5 Input coil spacing
After coil radii have been input
once, the variation of M with x
can be found as follows:
x A M
6 Enter coil spacing x D M

The test case is: r = 0.2, R = 0.25, and x = 0.1, which should be inserted as follows: 0.2 [ENT ] 0.25 [ENT ] 0.1 [A] 2.4877X10-7 at x = 0.2 m, 0.2 [D] 1,23945X10-7. Rational approximations to K(m) and E(m) are from reference 14.
