An technique for optimal design of magnetic field systems that utilizes a hybrid finite-element-boundary-element HFB method and mathematical programming is proposed. This technique is applied to the design of a high-homogeneous-field superconducting magnet system with an environmental shield for whole-body NMR imaging. Design results for three 1. 0-Tesla magnet systems with different types of shields (an iron shield, a shield magnet, and a combination of the iron shield and the shield magnet) are shown.
