Microstructures and viscoelastic properties of anisotropic magnetorheological elastomers
The microstructures and viscoelastic properties of anisotropic magnetorheological elastomers are investigated. The measurement results show that their mechanical properties are greatly dependent on the magnetic flux density applied during preparation. A finite-column model is proposed to describe the relationships between the microstructures and the viscoelastic properties. The simulation results agree well with the experimental results.
