Abstract

Under the compression mode, the direction of force on the magnetorheological elastomer (MRE) is parallel to the direction of electromagnetic force, so the effect of electromagnetic force on its dynamic mechanical properties cannot be ignored. Therefore, this paper focuses on the effect of electromagnetic force on the dynamic mechanical properties of MRE under compression mode. A new type of testing device was designed and processed. Under a different loading frequency, strain amplitude and external magnetic field, dynamic mechanical properties of MRE were tested, respectively. The result shows that the stiffness and energy dissipation capacity of MRE increase with the current and loading frequency. The stiffness of MRE decreases with the increase in the strain amplitude, but the energy dissipation capacity increases. Comparing the force-displacement curve of MRE with or without the effect of the electromagnetic force, it shows that the electromagnetic force has a great effect on the stiffness of MRE and little effect on its energy dissipation capacity. When the electromagnetic force is removed, the stiffness of MRE decreases, and the change rate of stiffness increases with current. The maximum change rate of stiffness is 5.65%.
