Many structures such as automobile bodies, bridges and buildings are subjected to external forces due to the nature of the environment in which they exist. When the external excitation frequency is similar to the structure’s natural frequency a resonance effect is generated, increasing the energy and the amplitude of the oscillation, often causing catastrophic situations. This paper presents a method to decrease such resonant oscillations using magnetorheological dampers.
