Paper Abstract

In this work, creep behavior of magnetorheological elastomers is investigated under combined magnetic and mechanical loading conditions. For the first time, a creep behavior model of MR elastomer is presented in this work in compression mode. A Weibull distribution function is used to model this behavior of MRE very well for both magnetic and mechanical loading conditions. This new model, which have been used previously for modeling recovery of thermosetting polymeric materials, is able to demonstrate the MRE creep behavior more accurately compared to previous models in the literature. The results show that the creep intensity is highly dependent on the carbonyl iron particle volume percentage of MRE samples, as well as the applied magnetic field.
