Modélisation par éléments finis de matériaux composites magnéto-électriques

Abstract : This thesis deals with the modelling of magnetoelectric effect in composite materials using finite element method. The magnetoelectric composite materials result from the combination of piezoelectric and magnetostrictive materials. The magnetoelectric constitutive laws were established by combining piezoelectric and magnetostrictive constitutive laws. The piezoelectric behaviour is assumed to be linear. Unlike the piezoelectric material, the magnetostrictive behaviour is nonlinear. In order to model the smart devices with the coexistence of static and low amplitude dynamic field, a linearization of constitutive laws is proposed. This step is to determine the polarisation point given by static field, then calculate the variation around this point associated with dynamic field. The static and linearized constitutive laws are then integrated in a 2D finite element code using Galerkin method.The finite element program is then used for modeling different devices in experimental. The first application is a tunable inductor controlled by a electric field. The numerical results are closed to experimental results despite unknown material properties. The model is then implemented in the case of magnetic sensor. This sensor is to detect accurately the static magnetic field in working plane. The comparison between numerical and experimental results shows again good qualitative agreement. Some improvements of sensor structure are purposed thanks to the developed model.
