Magnetic field induced deformation and buckling of slender bodies

Magnetic field induced deformation and buckling of slender bodies Magneto-responsive slender bodies are used in a range of promising applications, such as artificial cilia, magnetic fiber networks and cellular actuators.

Abstract

Magneto-responsive slender bodies are used in a range of promising applications, such as artificial cilia, magnetic fiber networks and cellular actuators. To accurately describe the magneto-elastic deformations, both the demagnetization field as well as the resulting magnetic loads on the body should be properly accounted for. The calculation of the demagnetization field for a general sample shape is very challenging, which has hampered the experimental characterization of the intrinsic magnetic and magnetoelastic properties. Here, a methodology is developed to accurately calculate the demagnetization field for slender bodies, i.e., for long beams having a rectangular or circular cross-section. We propose two different expressions for the magnetic load on slender bodies. To validate the two expressions, we solve the magnetic buckling problem for cantilever beams using an analytical approach for small deflections. We compare the critical buckling fields with an energy approach and with experimental results from three different studies. The load and energy methods were found to be similar and to correspond very well with the experimental data. To also validate our slender body approach (i.e., demagnetization field calculation and magnetic load expression) for large deflections, we analytically solve for the large (postbuckling) rotational deformation of slender beams. To do so, we formulated a weak form of the governing equations using a variational approach, which can be readily solved using finite elements and does not require a discretization of the space surrounding the magnetic material. We use this generic 3D continuum formulation as a starting point to derive the governing equations for slender bodies, which can be solved in a weak sense to find an approximate analytical formulation for large deflections and non-linear ferromagnetic materials. We compared the analytical results with experimental data on the post-buckling deformation of long cantilever beams and found excellent agreement. We anticipate that our results will be valuable for magneto-elastic (soft) robotics, homogenization approaches of magneto-elastic constitutive relations and other applications where strong magneto-elastic coupling is important.
