In this paper, a new type of magnetorheological fluid (MRF) mount is proposed. This design is based on the well-known of two modes of MRF such as flow mode and shear mode. These modes are applied in the design which includes two components: MR mount for controlling vertical vibrations, and MR brake for controlling horizontal vibrations. The structure of MR valve is applied in design mount part, while the disk type of structure is employed in design brake part. These structures contribute to the initial requirements such as small structure, high damping force and high braking force. The theoretical analysis for the design is undertaken followed by design optimization using ANSYS ADPL software. The objective functions are concentrated on maximal damping force for MR mount and maximum braking force for MR brake. As traditional design, rubber mount is used in the proposed design for suffering static loads. It has been shown through computer simulation that the initial requirements with high damping force and high braking force have been successfully achieved.
