Research on Vibration Isolating with Magneto-Rheological Damper


Article Preview

This work presents a test model of a vibration isolation system with magneto-rheological (MR) damper, and the Bingham model to describe the dynamic process of mechanical response for the MR damper. The analytical solution of the system in passive control is obtained via the averaging method, and verified numerically. The parameters which affect the performance of the vibration isolation are adjusted appropriately; the effects of the parameter are quantitatively or qualitatively analyzed.The proposed model utilizes a method that can be employed in a variety of dynamic systems. Moreover, the model parameters have direct physical significance to the MRF damper properties.
