Abstract: Magnetorheological elastomers (MRE) are potential resilient elements to improve the operating frequency range of a vibration isolator. The field-dependent characterization of MRE properties for varying input frequencies under lateral shear conditions has been well researched in past studies. In the present study, a novel approach to assess the magnetic field dependent rheological properties of magnetorheological elastomers under dynamic torsional loading is presented. Field and frequency-dependent properties are estimated from the dynamic blocked transfer stiffness method specified by ISO 10846. Viscoelastic properties represented in-terms of complex torsional stiffness and loss factor are estimated from the Lissajous curves within the linear viscoelastic (LVE) limit. Experiments are performed at a frequency range of 10 Hz 30 Hz under a constant input angular displacement. Magnetic field sensitive characteristics of MRE are evaluated under the field produced by a custom-made electromagnet. The results reveal a strong influence of field dependent variations on the complex stiffness in comparison with the input frequency. Variations observed in the loss factor suggests a dominance of the imaginary part of the complex stiffness on the energy dissipation. The reduced field induced enhancements in the complex stiffness are interpreted from the Magneto-static and structural based numerical simulations using ANSYS 19.1. 2019 Elsevier B.V.
