Paper Abstract

In this study, a new pressure seal, which can adjust the magnitude of the yield stress of the chamber containing a magnetorheological (MR) fluid, is investigated. The proposed seal can maintain the required pressure during the rotation of the shaft which may vary due to the friction. This design is based on the field-dependent special characteristics of MR fluid. Specifically, the inherent property of MR fluid changing from the liquid phase to semi-solid phase by applying the magnitude is utilized to achieve this goal. Owing to the semi-solid property of MR fluid under the magnetic field, MR fluid can replace the role of silicon materials in designing seal structure. Due to the high sealing provision, the proposed seal can be applicable to pressure locking, dust- and water-proof, and mating two different pieces. The maximal pressure which can be handled by the proposed is derived and analyzed in each case. The behaviors of fluid inside the housing is simulated and observed through the commercial software. The optimization of seal dimensions are then calculated without the pressure loss in design process.
