The research material that was presented in the study is primarily concerned with flow-mode MR shock absorbers and so-called MR suspension dampers in particular. The progress that has been made in the development of MR dampers has transformed them from a scientific toy to a relatively mature high volume product. The authors are of the opinion, that the presented material and models can be effectively used for analysing and modelling of various aspects of the damper operation, dynamic range and optimization studies, component-level as well system-level analyses. The material provides an insight into the phenomena occurring both inside the damper and those due to the MR fluid’s intrinsic properties.
