### Result

The flux density distribution is the main output of the electromagnetic model of **MANATEE software** as it is used to calculate the Maxwell stress tensor responsible for** electromagnetically-excited audible noise**.

This particular post processing plots the **tangential airgap flux** as a function of airgap angle, including the corresponding Fourier analysis:

Note that this 1D FFT graph gives only a partial view of the harmonics, as both space and time frequencies are involved in noise and vibration generation. A 2D Fourier transform of the flux is available with plot_Bt_cfft2.

This graph help identifying the space harmonics involved in flux density which may affect the **noise and vibration behaviour of the electrical machine**.
