The beneficial properties of magnetorheological fluids are applied in the design and testing of a prototype suspension system. Because viscosity of these fluids increased tremendously under the influence of a magnetic field, a suspension shock absorber containing magnetorheological fluids fluid is proposed. The shock system tested displayed resistance to motion with respect to the magnetic field strength.
