Dynamic characterisation of different magneto-sensitive natural rubbers for application in vibration isolation
2010 (English)In: Proceedings of ISMA 2010 - International Conference on Noise and Vibration Engineering, including USD 2010, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven , 2010, 227-231 p.Conference paper (Refereed)Text
Dynamic properties of magneto-sensitive natural rubber components were experimentally studied. Different magneto-sensitive rubbers were manufactured, consisting of irregularly shaped micron-sized iron particles embedded in a natural rubber matrix, and the influence of the hardness of the matrix material and the particle volume concentration were analyzed. Vibration isolators consisting of magneto-sensitive elastomers promise to have more functionality than conventional isolators as they can change their dynamic stiffness rapidly, continuously and reversibly under the application of an external magnetic field. Experimental measurements on MS components show that a better performance may be obtained at applications where small amplitudes are required, using soft matrix materials and with concentration close to a critical particle volume fraction.
