Good reference texts? Permanent Magnet Geometries

Good reference texts? Permanent Magnet Geometries

Anyone know any good reference texts for permanent magnet design?
I am working with Neodymium magnets and i am designing systems where the magnets are placed on a hub and used in conjunction with another hub to form a coupler or reduction from one shaft to another and i am trying to optimize the shapes of the magnets for my needs.

Any help would be great.

Try my FAQ:
FAQ340-1436: What are some books that deal with magnetism?
The Moskowitz book is very good for the application you mentioned.  

However, you may be better served by contacting an engineer at a magnet company.  A straightforward magnetic coupling is pretty simple to design & source.  A coupler to produce a gear reduction is a very complex design.

Thanks for the FAQ link... and your opinion.
