This study focuses on an experimental study of heat transfer from magneto-rheological fluid (MRF) dampers. Two semi- active automotive size MRF dampers, one with fins and the other without fins, were constructed and tested. The experimental results were compared with those of a previously developed theoretical model. It is demonstrate that especially at high peak velocities, the temperature rise is significant and heat transfer from these devices can be enhanced considerably by utilizing fins.
