Finite element analysis of the magnetorheological fluid brake transients

Wojciech Szeląg (Institute of Industrial Electrical Engineering, Poznań University of Technology, Poznań, Poland)


Deals with coupled electromagnetic, hydrodynamic, thermodynamic and mechanical motion phenomena in magnetorheological fluid brake. Presents the governing equations of these phenomena. The numerical implementation of the mathematical model is based on the finite element method and a step‐by‐step algorithm. In order to include non‐linearity, the Newton‐Raphson process has been adopted. The method has been successfully adapted to the analysis of the coupled phenomena in the magnetorheological fluid brake. Present the results of the analysis and measurements.
