Abstract
Magnetorheological elastomers (MREs) are smart materials whose mechanical behavior can be tailored by external magnetic fields, showing promises for wide use in on-demand stiffness control applications. However, conventional MREs have comparatively inferior mechanical properties due to matrix materials. Meanwhile carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have proved to be excellent reinforcing fillers with increased stiffness, strain at failure, and damping performance for nanocomposites. In this project, synthesis and dynamic mechanical analysis are conducted for silicone-rubber-based magnetorheological nanocomposites embedded with multi-walled carbon nanotubes.
