In this paper, we investigate the modeling of ferromagnetic multiscale materials. We propose a computational homogenization tech- nique based on the heterogeneous multiscale method (HMM) that includes both eddy-current and hysteretic losses at the mesoscale. The HMM comprises: 1) a macroscale problem that captures the slow variations of the overall solution; 2) many mesoscale problems that allow to determine the constitutive law at the macroscale. As application example, a laminated iron core is considered.
