Abstract


  • Magnetorheological elastomers (MREs) are smart materials where polarized particles are

    suspended in a non-magnetic solid or gel-like matrix. Two kinds of MREs, namely

    anisotropic and isotropic, are fabricated either under a magnetic field or without a field

    [1,2]. In anisotropic MREs, polarised particles are arranged in chains within a polymer

    media such as silicon rubber or natural rubber. The shear modulus of MRE can be controlled

    by the external magnetic field, which has led to many applications, such as tuned vibration

    absorbers, dampers and sensors
