Micromechanics of ferroic functional materials

Abstract:

This chapter introduces a range of ferroic functional materials including ferroelectrics, ferroelastics, and ferromagnets. Coupling among the different types of ferroic order results in multiferroic behavior that is of importance in transducers and memory devices. The physical laws governing each type of material are compared, noting the closely analogous governing equations. However, attention is also given to the differences in behavior that can necessitate distinct modeling approaches. The...
