Etymologies

magneto- + (con)striction.
(American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition)

Examples

  • He also worked with Lord Kelvin to develop the absolute scale of temperature, made observations on magnetostriction, and found the relationship between the flow of current through a resistance and the heat dissipated, now called Joule's law.

    Joule, James Prescott

  • But it's not based on magnetic attraction — it's magnetostriction.

    Natives of Space

  • The magnetostriction technology invented by MTS for Temposonics sensors enables the simultaneous and continuous position measurement of up to 30 different points on an axis, which can eliminate the need for multiple sensors or switches.

    Engineering Hardware-Software

  • Primary applications of magnetostriction are the detection of stress in thin films and the detection of torsional stress in shafts.
