Abstract
An effective design methodology for ER devices requires reliable data to characterize the behavior of the ER fluid as distinct from the test device. In this paper the authors describe a technique they have used for generating ER fluid data so that it can be used to predict the performance of different types and sizes of device operating with the test fluid. The application of the technique is then illustrated using a problem of current industrial interest: namely the dynamic modeling of a controllable vibration damper for vehicle suspension applications.
