In the search of new active materials, Ni-Mn-Ga ferromagnetic shape memory alloys have a prominent position thanks to their capability to rapidly develop a very important strain. This particular behavior is in fact due to variant structure rearrangement of twinned martensitic platelets (5M, 7M or TNM) at constant temperature. To predict this strain induced by an applied magnetic field and/or an applied stress, the authors have proposed a magneto-mechanical model based on phenomenology, thermodynamics of irreversible processes and changing of scale (or homogenization). More exactly, this model has been developed and validated for uniaxial magnetic field (in an fixed direction), but, for multiaxial stress in a single crystal with 5M and 7M twinned martensite.
