Abstract
This paper presents the results of modeling a shear-mode MR damper. The prototype damper consists of two steel parallel plates and in the middle, there is a paddle covered by foam saturated with MR fluid. The force is produced when the paddle is in motion and the magnetic field generated by a coil in one end of the device reaches the fluid. Several response forces were captured at different displacement excitations and magnetic field levels. The goal is to find a relationship between the velocity, the control voltage (inputs of the system) and the force generated by the device. The results of predicting the force using the Bingham, Bouc-Wen and Hyperbolic Tangent based models are compared and the suitability of these models is discussed.
