We present a novel approach for identifying a multiaxial thermodynamic magneto-mechanical constitutive law by direct bi- or trivariate spline interpolation from available magnetization and magnetostriction data. Reference data are first produced with a multiscale model in the case of a magnetic field and uniaxial and shear stresses. The thermodynamic model fits well to the results of the multiscale model, after which the models are compared under complex multiaxial loadings. A surprisingly good agreement between the two models is found, but some differences in the magnetostrictive behaviour are also pointed out. Finally, the model is fitted to measurement results from an electrical steel sheet. The spline-based constitutive law overcomes several drawbacks of analytical approaches used earlier. The presented models and measurement results are openly available.
