A directly coupled magneto-mechanical model is proposed for simulating the effect of the magnetostriction and electromagnetic stress in iron. The model is based on the general balance laws of electromagnetism, mechanics, and continuum thermodynamics. It is implemented in 2-D by using a conforming finite element method for the magnetic vector potential and the displacement field. The method is applied to two different types of induction machines.
