A simplified multiscale approach and a Helmholtz free energy based approach for modeling the magneto-mechanical behavior of electrical steel sheets are compared. The models are identified from uniaxial magneto-mechanical measurements of two different electrical steel sheets which show different magneto-elastic behavior. Comparison with the available measurement data of the materials shows that both models successfully model the magneto-mechanical behavior of one of the studied materials, whereas for the second material only the Helmholtz free energy based approach is successful.
