Paper Abstract

In this study, the electrical conductivity and magnetoresistance of magnetorheological elastomers (MREs) are experimentally investigated. The electrical resistivity of MREs is measured as a function of particle volume fraction, under different applied magnetic fields. In addition, the strain of the samples is measured simultaneously in order to evaluate the magnetoresistance and piezoresistance of MREs. It is observed that both magnetoresistance and piezoresistance in MREs are independent of the applied magnetic field and pre-compression force; and only depend on the particle concentration and mechanical strain.
