In this paper, we present a nonlinear constitutive relation for magnetostrictive materials that includes coupling between temperature/preload and magnetic field strengths. The nonlinear constitutive relations are also integrated into a 1-dimensional nonlinear finite element model for studying structural components or composite materials containing magnetostrictive materials. The accuracy of the nonlinear constitutive relation is evaluated by comparing experimental results obtained on a Terfenol-D rod operating under both magnetic field and stress biases with theoretical values present in the literature. Results indicate that the model adequately predicts the nonlinear strain/field relations in specific regimes. Experimental tests, conducted on monolithic samples of different geometry, suggests that size effects may be important. A manufacturing process and preliminary experimental tests are also presented for a 1 - 3 magnetostrictive composite sample.
