Paper Abstract

Magnetostriction-based actuators are finding increased applications in the general area of smart structures. This paper deals with the design methodology of magnetostriction- based actuators that use magnetostrictive material in the bulk or particulate form emphasizing the interaction between various design parameters. The design methodology is discussed under two categories, viz., constant internal stress actuators and variable internal stress actuators with examples. The simulation plots show how the parameters such as volume fraction, stiffness ratio, curing field, and internal stress affect the overall performance of the actuators.
