We present an alternative procedure to design a 0.1 T resistive magnet for magnetic resonance imaging. The procedure considers the conductor to be uniformly located over the cylindrical surface and treats it as coil elements. It applies the linear programming method with upper and lower bounds to constrain the current density to a fixed value in order to produce a desired magnetic field over a region of interest. The approach minimizes the power and preserves the predefined homogeneity, resulting in spatial clusters that define the coil's magnet. We demonstrate the method in a practical design situation.
