Kiefer and Lagoudas proposed a thermodynamic model for predicting the magneto-mechanical behavior of magnetic shape memory alloys (MSMAs) and then confirmed their model experimentally [1]. The model was calibrated by placing the test specimen under a constant magnetic field and a varying compressive stress. Later, Feigenbaum and Ciocanel [2] used the model to predict behavior under a constant compressive stress and a varying magnetic field. Because the two experiments were done by different researchers on different specimens, the calibration gave different values for material paremeters. In this work, through experimental results from tests performed on the same specimen by the same researchers, the Kiefer and Lagoudas model, with any hardening function, will be shown to be unable to be calibrated so as to accurately predict the magneto-mechanical behavior of a specimen under both types of loading conditions.
