Onset Magnetic Field for Rearrangement of Martensite Variants in Ni2MnGa

Abstract:

Article Preview

The magnetic field strength, Hs, at which rearrangement of martensite variants initiates has been investigated in Ni2MnGa ferromagnetic shape memory alloy by magnetization measurements in the [001]P direction ("P" stands for the parent phase). We have also calculated Hs from the magnetocrystalline anisotropy constant Ku, spontaneous magnetization Ms, twinning shear s and twinning stress τreq by considering the condition for the rearrangement of martensite variants reported previously [Int. J. Appl. Electromagnetics and Mechanics, 23 (2006) 45]. The calculated value of Hs is in good agreement with the experimental value for all the examined temperatures. The agreement confirms the applicability of the reported condition.
