Abstract

The paper presents the design and of a magnetorheological (MR) fluid based damper that operates in squeeze and flow modes. The damper has been designed to reduce vertical vibrations, namely displacement/force transmissibility, from a pneumatic hammer to the operator body. The mount governing equations have been derived and the effect of system parameters on its performance was analyzed. Particular attention was given to the effect of the operator mass and the magnitude of the magnetic field on the mount response. Results analysis indicated that the resonant peak decreases as the applied magnetic field increases. Simultaneously, the resonance frequency decreases.
