The sedimentation of magneto-rheological fluid monitoring system based on resistivity measuring
Keywords:magnetorheological fluid, electric resistivity of MRF, sedimentation of MRF
The aim of the research was to determine the resistivity of magnetorheological fluid in magnetic field when sedimentation occurs. The resistivity was measured with special created device. Three sections of magnetorheological fluid contained in glass tube were measured: top of the fluid, the middle and the bottom. The resistivity of the fluid was measured when it was conditioning and after constant time intervals. The resistivity changing showed that the results were suitable to the procedure for estimating the sedimentation of magnetorheological fluids.
