International Journal of Structural Engineering (IJSTRUCTE), Vol. 7, No. 1, 2016

Abstract: Seismic control, restorative and mechanical vibrations speak about a wide range of research that is emerging rapidly. Magneto-rheological dampers have as of late turned into an object of concentrated studies because of their interesting physical features and their ability to control damping in mechanical systems. In this paper an MR damper is analysed as a 2D model to be axisymmetric and finite element analysis using ANSYS is done to simulate the distribution of the magnetic field in the damper for a given current. Then the design for assembly (DFA) software tool is used for estimating cost of assembly of the final product.
