Properties and applications of Magnetorheological fluids

A. Spaggiari


This brief introduction describes the mechanical, rheological and magnetic properties of themagnetorheological (MR) fluids for feasible engineering applications. The typical modes of exploiting thistechnology are shown and discussed. An increasing number of industrial applications illustrate how the MRfluids peculiar properties may be used to provide optimal performance in semi active damping and dissipativedevices.
