Compared with the general damper, the MR fluid damper has the advantages of adjustable damping, large damping force and intelligence. Magneto rheological fluid damper is a unique role in the study of vibration, shock absorption, and tactile feedback. When the semi-active vibration control of the structure is carried out by the MR damper, the more accurate mechanical model of the damper is one of the key factors to achieve the better control effect of the MR damper. In this paper, the mechanical model of several magneto rheological fluid dampers is analyzed, and the characteristics are analyzed, and the design of MR fluid damper is performed on the basis of the analysis results.
