The smart materials are finding wide applications in active controlled engineering systems. The Magnetorheological Fluid is a smart material wherein its actuation and sensing can be easily and effectively controlled using an automatic feedback control system. Since, these characteristics are very much desirable in modern engineering systems, therefore the Magnetorheological Fluids are gaining wide popularity in several applications like automotive braking systems, automatic vibration dampers, engine mounting systems, clutches etc. In the present research work, a Single Disc Magnetorheological Brake comprising of a central peripheral electromagnet is proposed for automotive applications. Its performance analysis has been carried out to determine its effectiveness.
