Damping Characteristics of a NiMnGa/Polymer Composite Material
NiMnGa alloys are attractive for the magnetic induced shape memory effect, especially as promising functional elements in smart composite materials and structures. Recently, more attentions are put on NiMnGa composite materials. In this paper, NiMnGa particles have been dispersed and oriented in a polymer matrix with high content under magnetic field. The damping behavior of NiMnGa/polymer composites was investigated in by DMA, contrasting to the pure polymer.
