Application of two smart materials, namely shape memory alloy (SMA) and magnetorheological fluid (MRF) for rotor vibration control is explored to control the synchronous vibration of rotors crossing resonance condition. First a single degree of freedom system is analyzed to study the effect of SMA and MR fluid damper individually, and then the simulations are repeated to find the feasibility of using the two smart materials simultaneously. An MRF damper is designed, fabricated and installed on a rotor system. The fabricated MR damper is tested and an ANFIS model is trained to predict the damper force in the simulations carried out. The experimental rotor model is analyzed using finite element method in Matlab™. Simulations are carried out to study the effect of MR damper on rotor vibration response. Experimental results obtained from the rotor model with the fabricated MRF damper show considerable reduction in peak vertical amplitude as the current in the MR damper coils is increased. A good correlation between the theoretical and experimental results is observed.
