Magnetostrictive Terfenol-D Material Linear Simulation Using a Coupled FE-BEM
This paper describes the application of the coupled FE-BEM (finite element-boundary element method) for the numerical harmonic analysis of the linear dynamic behaviour of a magnetostrictive Terfenol-D rod in water. The magnetostrictive rod is three-dimensionally modeled to transduce applied electric current in a helical coil around the rod to mechanical displacement. The steady-state resonance response of the displacement is shown.
