Application of the Mr Liquids in Semi-active Control Devices
|Published in:||International Journal of Structural Stability and Dynamics, March 2003, n. 1, v. 3|
Magneto-rheological liquids are controllable liquids that under the action of a magnetic field can reversibly pass from the linear viscous liquid state with free-flow to the semi-solid one with a controlled stress-state. They are composed of typically non-colloidal magnetic micronized particles and possess a load carrying capacity higher than other, more controllable, fluids, such as electro-rheological liquids; moreover they are less sensitive to impurities and contaminations that may possibly occur in manufacturing. in the paper, the most suitable models for simulation of such devices are investigated with emphasis on evaluation of their efficiency as structural control systems.
