Electro-rheological fluids possess properties which render them particularlysuitable for inclusion as the controllable element in a variable stiffness or damping devicewithin an adaptive vibration isolation system. This paper reports on an experimentalinvestigation into the use of polymethycrylate based ER fluids, in particular in a dashpottype device, with the intention of studying their applicability for use in such a system.Initial effort was expended on dynamic modelling of the fluids using parameter estimationtechniques. The scope of this study was concentrated on variables related to fluidconstituent parts, forcing frequency and temperature.
