Paper Title:
Magnetorheological Fluids Behaviour in Tension Loading Mode
  Abstract

In this paper, the behaviours of three types of MR fluids under quasi-static loadings in tension mode were investigated. One type of water-based and two types of hydrocarbon-based MR fluids were activated by a magnetic field generated by a coil using a constant value of DC electrical current. Experimental results in terms of stress-strain relationships showed that the MR fluids had distinct unique behaviours during the tension process. A high ratio of solid particles to carrier liquid in the MR fluid is an indication of high magnetic properties. The water-based MR fluid had a relatively large solid-to-liquid ratio. At a given applied current, a significant increase in tensile stress was obtained in this fluid type. On the other hand, the hydrocarbon-based MR fluids had relatively lower solid to liquid ratios, whereby, less increases in tensile stress were obtained. The behaviours of MR fluids were dependent on the relative movement between the solid magnetic particles and the carrier fluid. A complication occurs because, in the presence of a magnetic field, there will be a tendency of the carrier fluid to stick with the magnetic particle
