Simulation-based Design Methodology for Magnetic Shape Memory Actuators

Gabdullin, N. & Khan, S. (2016). Simulation-based Design Methodology for Magnetic Shape Memory Actuators. Paper presented at the 5th International Conference on Ferromagnetic Shape Memory Alloys (ICFSMA 2016), 5-9 Sep 2016, Sendai, Japan.


MSM alloys, especially Ni-Mn-Ga alloys have been studied extensively for almost two decades. Their remarkable properties make them very promising for use in various electromagnetic (EM) devices, notably in actuators and sensors. However, at present there are no well-established design methodologies for MSM-based devises. This paper proposes a design methodology that uses commercially available EM modelling software and just a small amount of experimental data for its implementation. It allows reliable actuator modelling and performance evaluation without needing to calculate the magnetic field-induced stresses.
