An electrorheological (ER) suspension is made of an insulating liquid medium embodying both a semi-conductive particulate fabric or a semi-conductive liquid fabric (usually a liquid crystal material). for the reason that its mechanical homes may be simply managed over a variety (almost from a natural liquid to a solid), the ER fluid can be utilized as an electrical and mechanical interface in numerous business parts, for instance, within the automobile business for seize, brake and damping structures and in robot arm joints and palms.
In addition, the ER strategy can be utilized to manufacture complex useful fabrics corresponding to photonic crystals, clever inks, and heterogeneous polymer composites.
The significant aim of Electrorheological Fluids is to offer a finished survey at the ER suspensions in time period of screening excessive functionality ER fabrics, actual mechanisms of the ER impact, and the purposes of ER technology.

* purposes of ER suspensions are of vast curiosity either in academia and industry
* Surveys a wide physique of literature at the mechanism of the ER impression and the layout of industrially acceptable ER devices
* Discusses technological difficulties affiliated with business applications
