Magnetorheological (MR) fluids are smart materials whose flow/viscosity properties can be modified by applying an electric field. These changes in viscosity occur within a fraction of a millisecond – far faster than conventional mechanical means – and can be used to effectively control vibrations in applications dealing with actuation, damping, robotics and mechatronics.
