Abstract: The dynamic properties of magnetorheological elastomers are predominantly affected by variation in the input displacements. The displacement-dependent characteristics have been extensively studied under lateral shear, but the property variations under torsional shear have not been explored. The present study focuses on developing a novel method to study the influence of angular displacement on the dynamic properties of magnetorheological elastomers under torsional loading conditions. The experimental setup is developed according to the ISO 10846-2 standard to evaluate the variations in the dynamic torsional stiffness and loss factor. Experiments are conducted for input angular displacements ranging from 0.002 to 0.016 rad for an input frequency between 10 and 30 Hz. Results highlight the effectiveness of the developed method in capturing the rheological properties under torsion. Variations in the dynamic torsional stiffness suggest the dominant behaviour of the input angular displacement. The bound rubber theory is used to interpret the angular displacement dependent variations on the torsional stiffness. Further, the effect of input frequency and magnetic field on the dynamic torsional stiffness is also examined. It is also observed that the damping capacity of the MRE is dependent on the angular displacement and the dissipation capacity of the elastomer is evaluated in terms of loss factor. Results indicate a significant contribution of the interfacial damping over the intrinsic and magneto-mechanical hysteresis damping. 2019 IOP Publishing Ltd.
