Paper Abstract

Electrorheological (ER) fluids are fine semi-conducting particles in a non-conducting carrier fluid, which can alter their observed physical characteristics upon application of an external electric field. They are sometimes referred to as 'smart materials' and would appear to be of scientific and industrial interest. Theoretical responSe of a two degree of freedom system utilizing an ER damper is shown. This model could be representative of a quarter vehicle system, or a vibration absorber.
