This paper is concerned with the modeling of the magnetic shape memory alloy (MSMA) constitutive response caused by the reorientation of martensitic variants. Following a summary of the constitutive model previously proposed by the authors, the nonlinear and hysteretic strain and magnetization response of MSMAs are investigated for two main loading cases, namely the magnetic field-induced reorientation of variants under constant uniaxial stress and the stress-induced reorientation under… CONTINUE READING
