This study focuses on the effect of temperature on the performance of compressible magnetorheological fluid dampers (CMRDs). In addition to change of properties in the presence of a magnetic field, magnetorheological fluids (MRFs) are temperature-dependent materials that their compressibility and rheological properties change with temperature, as well. A theoretical model that incorporates the temperature-dependent properties of MRF is developed to predict the behavior of a CMRD. An experimental study is also conducted using an annular flow CMRD with varying temperatures, motion frequencies, and magnetic fields. The experimental results are used to verify the theoretical model. The effect of temperature on the MRF properties, such as, the bulk modulus, yield stress and viscosity, are explored. It is found that the shear yield stress of the MRF remains unchanged within the testing range while both the plastic viscosity, using the Bingham plastic model, and the bulk modulus of the MRF decrease as temperature increases. In addition, it is observed that both the stiffness and the energy dissipation decrease with an increase in temperature.
