Paper Abstract

Present article briefly summarizes the mechanism of magnetic shape memory, main modeling principles and most important information about the main structural, magnetic and mechanical properties related to a family of non- stoichiometric Ni-Mn-Ga alloys. We also first consider in details the problems of energy balance, energy losses, optimization of work output and estimation of thermodynamic efficiency for Ni-Mn-Ga based MSMAs.
