Study of Magnetic Annealing on Magnetostriction in Grain-Oriented 3.2 % Si Steels
The effects of magnetic annealing on a magnetiostriction in commercial grain-oriented 3.2 at.% Si steels were investigated. A combined (constant+strong pulsed) magnetic field during the magnetic annealing played a significant role in reducing the magnetostriction. The reduction ratio in magnetostriction was greatly dependent on surface conditions such as whether it was a bare metallic, tension coated and laser-scribed surface for grain-oriented electrical steels. For all three samples, the effect of the magnetic annealing on reduction in maganetostriction is more clearly observed in the compressive stress rather than in the tensile stress region.
