This paper describes the effect of electromechanical phase on electrical resistivity of a composite consisting of magnetostrictive phase, conductive phase and insulating phase. It is found that the resistance of three-phase composite increases with increase of applied magnetic field beyond a certain va1e ot magnetic field. This resistivity vs. magnetic field characteric seems to be a novel magnetoresistance effect, which is different from the conventional magnetoresistors. The mechanism of resistance variation of three-phase composite with applied magnetic field is analysed, and the influence of material parameter of the polymer matrix like elastic modulus on the resistance vs. magnetic field characterics is discussed.
