The giant magnetoresistive (GMR) behaviors of discontinuous double-layer giant magnetoresistive films with different microstracture arising from different annealing conditions, are calculated using a numerical micromagnetic model. The effect of magnetic grain growths in the perpendicular and lateral directions in the magnetic layers, and the formation and growth of grain clusters were studied. The GMR responses of the films are analyzed in terms of magnetostatic interactions between the magnetic layers and the microstructural geometric effects on the transport properties of the samples.
