Authors have proposed a new type of vibration suppression device that utilizes variable inertia mass by fluid which acts as a series inertia mass. The series inertia mass is proportional to not only square of a ratio between a diameter of a piston cylinder and a by-pass pipe, and also a density of the fluid. The resisting force characteristics in case of water or turbine oil were measured. To confirm the proposed theory and investigate effects of vibration control, vibration tests of frequency response and seismic response of one-degree-of-freedom system with the test device were carried out. The experimental results were compared with the calculated results, and the effects of vibration suppression are confirmed experimentally and theoretically. In this paper, in order to derive the effect of a variable inertia mass by using a magnet-rheological fluid, resisting force characteristics of the test device are measured in several cases of magnetic field. The orifice of the by-pass pipe can be changed in virtual, since some rare-earth magnets are installed around the by-pass pipe. It can be seen from experimental results that the inertia force is increasing as stronger magnetic fields. It is pointed out that the variable inertia mass can be derived since clustered magnetic particles in the by-pass pipe act as a virtual orifice under strong magnetic field. The relation between magnetic flux and variable inertia mass are estimated experimentally.
