A novel approach for predicting magnetic hysteresis loops and losses in ferromagnetic laminations under mechanical stress is presented. The model is based on combining a Helmholtz free-energy-based anhysteretic magnetoelastic constitutive law to a vector Jiles-Atherton hysteresis model. This paper focuses only on unidirectional and parallel magnetic fields and stresses, albeit the model is developed in a full 3-D configuration in order to account also for strains perpendicular to the loading direction. The model parameters are fitted to magnetization curve measurements under compressive and tensile stresses. Both the hysteresis loops and the losses are modeled accurately for stresses ranging from -50 to 80 MPa.
