Project: Electrical steels: magnetostriction, losses, magnetomechanical interaction and influence of the texture (reduction of noise and energy losses in electromagnetic devices).

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-03
A better insight in the phenomena of magnetostriction and losses in the actual conditions of the magnetic material in the various applications, is aimed at. A quantitative study of the magnetic and mechanical behaviour of electrical steels will be carried out, i.e. modelling, characterization and measurements. To this end, the magnetic properties must be measured under various mechanical stress levels. New macroscopic models must be developed to include also magnetostriction output and the mechanical stress input. Finally, the influence of the texture on losses and magnetostriction will be investigated.
