Effect of Cylinder Diameter of Monotube-Type MR-Damper on the Damping Force Changing Ratio and the Response Time 2011-32-0580
MR-damper (Magneto-Rheological fluid damper) is used an actuator with high speed in response to control the movement of four-wheel vehicles. In this paper, performances of two MR-dampers were measured. These dampers had difference in diameter of cylinder, length of piston and orifice. These changes will influence the damping force, the damping force change ratio and the response time of damping force change. As a result, a larger damper showed 1.4 times damping force change ratio of smaller one and shorter response time in compression.
