Magnetorheological fluids (MR) are capable of changing their rheological properties when a magnetic field is applied. One of the most important applications of the MR fluid is in vibration dampers, mainly used in construction, automobiles and other mechanical systems subjected to excitations that cause unwanted vibrations. For this work, a MR damper used in vehicle suspensions is characterized by using a comparative analysis of mathematical models present in scientific literature.
