This letter discusses the basic philosophy of a fully three-dimensional finite-element method for collector design together with ifs main features. In particular, attention is focused on the dedicated mesh generator and the strategy followed for the solution of the coupled electromagnetic and motional problem within the same finite-element discretization context. An example of simulation is carried out, and indications of future applications are also provided.
