Abstract

Magnetorheological elastomers (MREs) are a class of smart materials composed of an elastomer and micron-sized magnetic particles. Besides the loading amplitude and frequency, the elastic and rheological properties of MREs are also dependent on the external magnetic field and temperature. Previous studies focused on the influences of external magnetic field, strain amplitude and frequency on the dynamic properties, however, the temperature effect was rarely reported. In this paper, dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) tests were carried out to investigate the viscoelastic properties of the anisotropic MRE samples under various temperatures and magnetic fields. A transition behavior of the anisotropic MRE samples was observed at about 50 °C for the dynamic modulus. The storage modulus initially decreased with the increasing of the temperature up to 50 °C and then increased or maintained a stable value when the temperature increased up to 60 °C. The time-temperature superposition (TTS) principle was extended to construct the dynamic modulus master curve of the MREs by using the horizontal shift factor and the vertical shift factor. The good correlations between the measured and predicted data were confirmed by performing statistical analysis for the goodness of fit. The constructed master curve and shift factors can be used to predict the viscoelastic properties of the MREs beyond the DMA experiment's range of temperatures and frequencies.
