Nonlinear bending response of giant magnetostrictive laminated actuators in magnetic fields

Vol. 4 (2009), No. 5, 941–949
Abstract

We report numerical and experimental investigations into the nonlinear bending behavior of magnetostrictive laminated actuators under magnetic fields. Magnetostrictive actuators were fabricated from thin layers of Terfenol-D and metal, and the magnetostriction of the devices was measured. A nonlinear finite element analysis was employed to evaluate the contribution of magnetic domain switching to the second-order magnetoelastic constants in the Terfenol-D layer. The effect of a magnetic field on the nonlinear deflection and internal stress of magnetostrictive laminated actuators is discussed.
