Modeling of an Adaptive Beam with MR Fluid
This paper is devoted to modeling of a three-layered cantilever beam filled with magnetorheological (MR) fluid. The beam consists of two aluminium outer layers and an MR fluid layer placed between them. The study covers description of MR fluid behavior in the pre-yield regime, analysis of strain and internal forces, formulation of differential equations of motion and finite element model (FEM) and numerical calculations. The aim of the study is to determine maximal amplitudes up to which the MR fluid operates in the pre-yield regime.
