16 May 2005 Effective magnetic properties of Fe-NiTi (FSMA) particulate composite
Author Affiliations +
Ferromagnetic Shape Memory Alloy (FSMA) particulate composites are processed using Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) with various weight fractions of NiTi (51 at% Ni) and Fe powders. The magnetic properties of these composite specimens were experimentally evaluated using Vibration Sample Magnetometry (VSM). A model for calculating the effective magnetic properties has been presented in this work where Eshelby's inhomogeneous inclusion method considering Mori-Tanaka's mean field theory for larger concentrations of Fe has been used to predict the effective magnetic properties. The analytical results thus obtained are compared with experimental data resulting in a reasonably good agreement.
