Abstract: In the present study, the magnetorheological fluid (MRF) samples are prepared using pure carbonyl iron particles (CIPs), CIPs/Claytone APA/Molyvan 855 additive, and friction reducer dispersed in poly-alpha-olefin oil. The scanning electron microscopy reveals that the Claytone additive morphology looks like a surface abundant in small folds, which connect the gaps between the spherical pure CIPs and prevent sedimentation in the MRF. The magnetic saturation properties are investigated through the vibrating sample magnetometer. The pure CIPs MRF shows (Ms) value as 146.12 emu/g, and the CIPs/Claytone APA/Molyvan indicates (Ms) as 55.12 emu/g. The magnetorheological flow curves, such as shear stress and viscosity as a function of shear rate, are investigated for the MRF samples through the magnetorheometer. The sedimentation analysis of the MRF is observed by visual inspection and shows that the CIPs/Claytone APA/Molyvan improved the sedimentation rate than the pure CIPs MRF. Finally, the experimental characterization of the prototype monotube MR damper is carried out using the hydraulic dynamic testing machine at 1.5 Hz frequency for damper peak–peak displacement length of ± 5 mm at three intervals of 0 h, 24 h, and 72 h in damper to know the effect on damping force for the prepared MRF samples against the sedimentation rate. © 2020, The Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering.
