Designing and Fabricating a Variable Magnetic Damper for Semi Active Suspension System

Background/Objectives: The purpose of the project is to formulate MR fluid and fabricate MR damper.MR damper is modelled to provide semi-active suspension system in vehicles. Methods/Statistical analysis: The stiffness of suspension system can be varied by using MR fluid. The project aims at fabrication of MR damper and preparation of magneto-rheological fluid, which can vary its viscosity inside the damper in the presence of magnetic field. MR fluid varies its stiffness under the magnetic field; this principle is used to control the damping action of the shock absorber. Findings: The iron particles in the MR fluid opposes the carrier fluid passing through piston head holes. This resistance builds strong opposition for shock absorber oscillation. As With increasing the current provided the number of cycles the damper can sustain is rising which can result in more lifetime of damper. Improvements/Applications: This Technology can be further implemented in Brake System. These MR Dampers are used in certain automobile industries and vehicles. Some automobile industries are working on it to implement in the near future.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
