Research project: Novel approach to MRE smart materials and structures for suppressing vibration and noise

Currently Active: 
Yes

Magnetorheological Elastomer (MRE) is a promising new smart material due to its unique elastic and rheological properties that can be changed continuously, rapidly and reversibly responding to the applied magnetic field.

MRE’s real-time controllable stiffness and damping properties have many advantages and offer wide applications to vibration control in various engineering fields, hence attracted much attention in recent years. This project aims to develop new approach and technique to modelling and manufacturing high-performance smart MRE materials and structures for vibration control of marine structures.
