Paper Abstract

Magnetorheological (MR) transmission transmits the torque by the shear stress of the MR fluids. In this paper, the operational Model of MR fluids transmission is investigated theoretically. Bingham model is used to describe the properties of the MR fields. Based on the direct shear operational mode, the transmission modes of the MR fluid between two parallel plates, two circular plates and two circular plates are analyzed respectively. The expressions of the force and the torque developed by the shear stress of MR fluids in these transmission modes are derived. The research results show that the MR fluids can be used in transmission. The torque increases as the applied magnetic field strength increase.
