Abstract


In this paper, the theoretical background of linear constitutive multifield behavior as well as the Finite Element implementation are presented. The developed tools enable the prediction of the electromagnetomechanical properties of materials and structures and supply useful tools for the optimization of multifunctional composites. First, linear three-field coupling is presented within the context of a Finite Element implementation. Then, a homogenization technique is applied to describe the macroscopic behavior. A numerical examples focus on the prediction of the magneto-electric (ME) effect for different composite arrangements.
