A magneto-rheological (MR) fan clutch is a device that transmits torque by the shear stress of the MR fluids. In this paper, the torque transmitted by MR fluids is analyzed to compute the torque transmission ability in the disk-type MR fan clutch. The results show that with the increase of the applied magnetic field, the torque developed by MR fluids goes up rapidly. The driven speed of the fan clutch can be adjusted continuously by changing the applied magnetic field.
