Abstract
One and three-dimensional computational models for the dynamical sensing response of Galfenol based magnetostrictive devices are developed. The sensing model calculates the fraction of magnetic moments oriented along each of the energetically preferred directions of the crystal as a function of time, which can then be used to determine the time evolution of the total magnetization. Results from the sensing model are compared to quasi-static loading experiments for validation and extraction of phenomenological parameters. As a sample application, the sensing model is incorporated into an AC energy harvesting circuit to predict the magnetization and energy harvested under dynamical loading conditions.
