Parametric identification of MR linear automotive size damper

Bogdan Sapiński
The paper deals with the problem of parametric identification of phenomenological models of a MR damper. The rheological structures of the MR damper described by two fundamentals parametric models that are due to Bingham and Spencer are reviewed. The problem of identification is considered, exemplary results of MR damper experimental tests and an adjustment procedure of the estimated parameters with respect to experimerital data are discussed. A linear MR damper of RD-1005 series developed by Lord Corporation has been tested and modelled.
