We propose a mathematical model for the deflection of single crystal films of Ni2MnGa ferromagnetic shape memory alloys in response to the application of a magnetic field. We then present the results of numerical simulations obtained from the finite element approximation of this model to study the deflection of the film due to the application of a magnetic field.
