Abstract
A disk-type MR fluid damper based on shear operation mode is presented in this paper. The magnetic field of the disk-type MR fluid damper is analysed by the finite element method. The effect of excitation current in the coil on the magnetic flux density in the axial gaps filled with MR fluid is studied both theoretically and experimentally. Finally, the effectiveness of the disk-type MR fluid damper for attenuating vibration of rotor systems and of a simple open-loop on-off control based on the feedback of rotational speed on controlling vibration of rotor systems are experimentally studied. It is shown that the dynamic characteristics of the disk-type MR fluid damper can be controlled by a simple magnetic coil with a low voltage, and the disk-type MR fluid damper is very effective to attenuate vibration of rotor systems.
