In this article the torque characteristic of a permanent magnet magnetorheological (MR) clutch is investigated focusing on the influence of temperature. An experimental campaign was carried out on a test bench equipped with a caulk oxen, heating up to 80◦C. The torque characteristic was measured monitoring both fluid and clutch case temperature. Torque data were processed and well fitted by a formula where the temperature dependence is expressed by Arrhenius law. In particular, a loss of transmitted torque for increasing temperature was found. An approximate dependence of MR fluid shear stress on temperature, useful for similar devices, was also obtained.

Abstract

In this article the torque characteristic of a permanent magnet magnetorheological (MR) clutch is investigated focusing on the influence of temperature. An experimental campaign was carried out on a test bench equipped with a caulk oxen, heating up to 80◦C. The torque characteristic was measured monitoring both fluid and clutch case temperature. Torque data were processed and well fitted by a formula where the temperature dependence is expressed by Arrhenius law. In particular, a loss of transmitted torque for increasing temperature was found. An approximate dependence of MR fluid shear stress on temperature, useful for similar devices, was also obtained.
