Statistical mechanics is employed to derive magnetic and magnetostrictive bulk properties of soft magnetic materials dominated by domain wall motion. The material is divided into an ensemble of volumes with uniform magnetization, each one much smaller than a typical domain but much larger than one atom. The energy for such a volume element is assumed to consist of an internal energy: the interaction with the external magnetic field and a mean field interaction with the surrounding medium. The volume fractions of discrete mesoscopic magnetizations in the medium are derived from Boltzmann statistics. The bulk magnetization is the weighted average of the mesoscopic values. Magnetostriction is treated in a similar way. Calculations are compared with two-dimensional measurements on grain-oriented silicon #x2013;iron. #xa9; 1999 American Institute of Physics.
