In this paper, the 3-D model proposed in Part I of this study is verified in detail on the basis of a levitation/suspension system composed of a rectangular single-domain Y-Ba-Cu-O and a cylindrical Nd-Fe-B magnet or a permanent magnet guideway (PMG) assembled by the Nd-Fe-B magnets. The magnetic forces along the vertical direction perpendicular or the transverse direction parallel to the surface of the PMG (or magnet) were calculated and compared well with the measured data under vertical and transverse displacements. The computed results of the induced current distribution within the Y-Ba-Cu-O domain, as well as the magnetic field profiles in the Y-Ba-Cu-O and its vicinal region, were also presented and discussed.
