Paper Abstract

In this work we study the unstable phenomena that occur on Magnetic Shape Memory Alloys (MSMAs) during compression tests. Solving the coupled magnetomechanical problem we observe that during the reorientation process the material presents strong non-uniformity, in the form of localized zones, in the distribution of the magnetic, the stress and the strain field. This non-uniformity is due to loss of ellipticity of the coupled problem during the martensitic reorientation and affects significantly the reorientation process. The identification of the stability conditions of the magnetomechanical problem is achieved by performing stability analysis.
