Abstract

In this paper, the graphite based Magnetorheological Elastomer (Gr MREs) is presented to study the sensing capability of MREs. With the help of graphite, the giant resistance of MREs is reduced to kΩ level. When either the magnetic field or the external force is applied on to the Gr MREs, its resistance is changed. This finding opens up possibilities for the design of a force sensor combining Gr MREs. A representative unit model is addressed to express the phenomenon theoretically.
