    Technical applications of multifilamentary wires indicate that filaments are used in complex magnetic fields (a combination of non-parallel a.c./d.c. transverse and rotating fields) carrying an a.c./d.c. transport current of various frequency. Furthermore, due to technical manufacturing processes the filaments are heavily distorted. Therefore, a numerical model is developed to compute the current density of a filament of arbitrary shape in any external transverse field carrying an a.c./d.c. transport current. The great flexibility of the model is shown in several examples.
