Active Control of Landing Gear Shock Absorber Characteristic Using Magnetoreological Fluids
Smart materials are being used in much larger scale in mechanical solutions. Aviation usage of these materials seems to be natural because of interest in new technologies use in this industry. In this article authors discuss characteristics of magnetoreological fluids as a smart materials, examples of its industrial usage, requirements on landing gear characteristics, design and lab tests of model shock absorber in which MRF was used as damping fluid.
