Magnetorheological Elastomer Silicone-Based Containing Corroded Carbonyl Iron Particles
In this study, magnetorheological elastomers (MREs) were synthesized using silicone rubber (SR) as the matrix element interspersed with 70 weight percent of corroded carbonyl iron particles (CIPs). The CIPs were corroded in dilute hydrochloric acid (HCl) for 4 hours. The rheological properties related to MR effect were experimentally examined in the absence and presence of magnetic field at various current using a rheometer. The experimental results depicted the MR effect of the MRE with corroded CIPs decreased one-half, 27% as compared to the non-corroded samples, 58%. The correlation between the purity of CIPs and storage modulus of MR elastomer is examined in this study.
