Title:
MAGNETORHEOLOGICAL (MRF) ACTIVE ISOLATION SYSTEM
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2005111460
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A system for reducing vibrations in a rotating system uses a variable viscosity medium (26) that is redistributed in a housing (20) connected to the rotating system (2). Specifically, the medium is responsive to a control signal that is generated as a function of rotational speed of the rotational system. The control signal activates a triggering device that promotes a change in viscosity of the medium such that it is distributed within the housing in a manner that reduces vibratory loads.
