Abstract : Permanent magnet solenoids that employ radially oriented cladding to confine flux have found several applications of late. As the design of these solenoids becomes routine, it is inevitable that one must be able to quickly assess the feasibility of using the same in more complex gadgetry. Accordingly, this report compiles a catalog of permanent magnet solenoids and presents the required field in terms of aspect ratio, bulk and weight. An introduction to sculpting the field profile, if the design so demands, is also presented.
