Active Friction Control Based on Electrorheological Effect
A preliminary study of active friction control method based on electrorheological (ER) effect is experimentally investigated. The friction coefficient can be changed from 0.07 to 0.9 continuously with the applied voltage in the range of 0 to 2000 V. Results show that by using proper ER fluids and structure design, active friction control based on ER effect has good potential in real industrial applications.
