Abstract


  • In this study a model based on the Bouc-Wen-Baber-Noori (BWBN) method was proposed to describe the distorted hysteretic behaviour of a self-constructed magneto-rheological (MR) damper whose mechanical performance was measured with an Instron test machine. The experimental results indicated that the MR damper exhibited a force-lag phenomenon. The parameters of the modified BWBN model were identified with the MATLAB SIMULINK Design and Optimisation toolbox. A comparison between the experimental results and modelling predictions revealed that the proposed model could well present the force-lag phenomenon.
