27 April 2011 Magnetorheological elastomer mount for shock and vibration isolation
Author Affiliations +
A novel magnetorheological elastomer (MRE) mount is designed, fabricated, and tested to provide a wide controllable compression static stiffness range for protecting a system with variable payload from external shock and vibration. The shear static stiffness and compression dynamic stiffness were also studied. MRE is a field-controllable material in which the stiffness properties can be altered by changing the applied magnetic field. A MRE mount is developed by using 0.5-inch thick MRE layers and built-in electromagnets. The performance of the 2-layer MRE mount is characterized by compression, shear, vibration, and shock tests. The tests demonstrate that the variable-stiffness MRE mount can be used for shock and vibration isolation applications.
