Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: In this paper we calculate the mutual inductance and the magnetic force between the thick Bitter coil of rectangular cross section with the inverse radial current and the thin wall superconducting solenoid with the constant azimuthal current. The semi-analytical and the analytical expressions of these magnetic quantities are obtained over complete elliptic integrals of the first and second kind as well as Heuman's Lambda function. There is a simple integral which has to be solved numerically by some of numerical integrations. The results of this method are compared by those obtained by the modified filament method for the presented configuration. All results are in an excellent agreement.
