This paper presents a 3D shape optimization algorithm for electromagnetic devices using the design sensitivity analysis with finite element method. The structural deformation analysis based on the deformation theory of the elastic body under stress is used for mesh renewing. The design sensitivity and adjoint variable formulae are derived for the 3D nonlinear finite element method with edge element. The proposed algorithm is applied to the shape optimization of 3D electromagnet to get a uniform flux density at the air gap.
