Abstract
Magnetorheological (MR) dampers are used for semi-active vibration control of various dynamic systems. Existing MR dampers are usually cylinder-piston based design, which may limit the shapes and have constraints to the design of MR devices. In this paper, we propose a new MR-fluid working operation, in which MR fluids work between gear transmissions. This operation could provide more design flexibility. A prototype of the regenerative damper with MR fluids working between gear transmissions was designed, fabricated, and tested. This MR damper has the capability of power generation and velocity sensing. The feasibilities of the controllable MR damping force, power generation and velocity sensing are experimentally verified. The results of this research would be beneficial to advance the design and multiple functions of MR dampers while not limited to traditional piston-type design.
