Paper Abstract

Magnetic Shape Memory Alloys (MSMAs) are promising high-frequency active materials for actuation, sensing, shape control, vibration suppression and energy harvesting applications. The macroscopic functionality of MSMAs originates from the coupled evolution of highly heterogeneous magnetic and elastic domain microstructures. Microstructure dependence of phase transformations in MSMAs introduces internal variables into the model to account for strong effects of domain microstructure processes on MSMA properties and varying elastic and magnetic coupling. Selection of internal variables and their incorporation into constitutive modeling has been done for the problem of field-induced martensite reorientation. Introducing a new internal variable, the austenitic volume fraction, the study of field induced phase transformation between the parent and martensitic phases is performed.
