Smart materials are used in a variety of applications ranging from vibration and active shape control to structural health monitoring and energy harvesting. These materials are widely used in actuators and sensors for their ability to efficiently transduce one form of energy to another. In this webinar we will show how the modeling framework in COMSOL Multiphysics provides the key to simulating smart materials that exhibit piezoelectric, piezoresistive, magnetostrictive, and shape memory effects using case studies. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.
MAGNETOSTRICTION: Model of a transducer with a nonlinear magnetostrictive rod. Results show its displacement due to the magnetic field generated by a current-carrying drive coil.
