Temperature Effect on Yield Stress of Electrorheological Fluids: Experimental Investigation


Article Preview

In the present paper, temperature effect on yield stress of electrorheological fluids is experimentally investigated. A rotational shear-mode type electroviscometer is designed and manufactured for the identification of Bingham characteristics of ER fluids. Optimization of ER fluids is undertaken with carrier liquid, particle and additive treatment and then four different ER fluids are prepared for the test. The field-dependent yield stress, current density and response time of optimized ER fluids are compared at various temperature conditions.
