Dynamics of electrorheological clutch and a problem for non-linear parabolic equation with non-local boundary conditions W. Abstract Clhtch general problem on dynamics of the electrorheological clutch is formulated and studied. Approximate problem is formulated in a form of a problem with a delay. The clutch acts as a power amplifier and the effect is fast of the order of milliseconds and reversible.

As a first step towards commercialisation, the research team is working with China Patent Investment to develop potential applications for the ER fluids. The operation of the electrorheological clutch is simulated by a nonlinear parabolic equation which describes the motion of electrorheological fluid in the gap between the driving and driven rotors.

Such fluids and their unique properties have been recognised for more than 50 years, but practical applications had yet to be developed because, until now, researchers had been unable to break the 20 kPa barrier.


The ER fluid is used as the coupling between the input and the output drive and driven members. Don’t already have an Oxford Academic account?

In the case that the clutch acts as an accelerator, the energy consumed in the acceleration of the driven rotor is minimized under the restriction that at some instant, the angular velocity and the acceleration of the driven electrorheplogical are localized within given regions.

In this case, the velocity of the driving rotor is prescribed on one part of the boundary.

The electromagnetic scattering problem by a cylindrical doubly connected domain at oblique incidence: Retrieved from ” https: The torque function is computed upon integrating the shear stresses non-linear functions of derivatives of the velocity over the surface of the driven rotor.

The effect of inclination on the development of slugging in channel flow. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A problem on optimal control of acceleration or braking of the driven rotor is formulated and studied. It is proved the existence and the uniqueness of the solution of the initial and approximate problems and the convergence of the solutions of the approximate problem to the solution of the initial problem as elechrorheological parameter of delay tends to zero.

Scientists at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology have developed a novel clutch based on a new class of electrorheological fluids. Views Read Edit Electrorheo,ogical history. The problem amounts to finding out a function of velocity of the electrorheological fluid which satisfies the motion equation non-linear parabolic equation and mixed non-classical boundary conditions.
