This paper is focused on the micromagnetic simulation study about the orientation dependence of grain boundaryproperties on the coercivity of polycrystalline Nd-Fe-B sinteredmagnets. A multigrain object with a large number of meshes is introduced to analyze such anisotropic grain boundaries and the simulation is performed by combining the finite element method and the parallel computing. When the grain boundary phase parallel to the c-plane is less ferromagnetic the process of the magnetization reversal changes and the coercivity of the multigrain object increases. The simulations with various magnetic properties of the grain boundary phases are executed to search for the way to enhance the coercivity of polycrystalline Nd-Fe-B sinteredmagnets.
