Measurement of Normal Force in Magnetorheological and Ferrofluid Lubricated Bearings
Preliminary analysis of magnetorheological fluid usability in fluid lubricated bearings has been described in the present study. Results of the study aimed at rheological properties of chosen fluids, which possess magnetic properties (both ferrofluids and magnetorheological fluids) with respect to their application in slide bearings have been presented Preliminary analysis of potential advantages related with the magnetic fluid bearing construction was carried out. Results of measurements of normal force developed within magnetorheological fluid and ferrofluid in result of magnetic field action at various shear rate values have been presented.
