Magnetic field-induced martensitic phase transformation in magnetic shape memory alloys: Modeling and experiments Academic Article uri icon


  • In this work, a continuum based model of the magnetic field induced phase transformation (FIPT) for magnetic shape memory alloys (MSMA) is developed. Hysteretic material behaviors are considered through the introduction of internal state variables. A Gibbs free energy is proposed using group invariant theory and the coupled constitutive equations are derived in a thermodynamically consistent way. An experimental procedure of FIPT in NiMnCoIn MSMA single crystals, which can operate under high blocking stress, is described. The model is then reduced to a 1-D form and the material parameter identification from the experimental results is discussed. Model predictions of magneto-thermo- mechanical loading conditions are presented and compared to experiments. © 2014 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
