A 15 percent nickel composite was manufactured and tested under a sinusoidally applied magnetic field at a frequency of 0.3 Hz around a DC bias of 0kA/m without an external mechanical load. The particulate are obtained from a process known as spark erosion, resulting in particulate that are nearly spherical in shape. Parameters that were recorded include strain, magnetic field, and magnetic flux. Experimental strain output values were comparable to strain measured from a single crystal nickel along the axis. However, the effects of the epoxy are non-negligible and results regarding texturing of the composite are inconclusive.
