One can see that the harmonic effect of skewing obtained with MANATEE fast models (a few seconds of calculations) match very well with [R1] calculations carried in full 3D electromagnetic FEA:

Besides MANATEE subdomain modeling technique does not suffer from meshing error: no artificial remeshing ripple is introduced in the calculation of harmonic forces, resulting in more physical results in terms of vibrations and acoustic noise.
