Abstract

This paper presents the development and characterization of a magnetorheological (MR) fluidbased variable stiffness and damping isolator. The prototype of the MR fluid isolator is fabricated, and its dynamic behavior is measured under various applied magnetic fields. The parameters of the model under various magnetic fields are identified, and the dynamic performance of the isolator is evaluated in simulation. Experimental results indicate that both the stiffness and damping capability of the developed MR isolator can be controlled by an external magnetic field.
