Abstract

The Electro-rheological Gel (ERG) is a new functional material which shows the wide range of shear stress variation in response to the applied electric field. To apply the electric field to the ERG. it is necessary to sandwich the ERG between a pair of plane-parallel electrodes. However, it is not convenient for the practical use to wire the both of electrodes for high voltage supply. In this study, the one-sided structured electrodes are proposed in order to simplify the structure of the wiring. Moreover, the ERG on one-sided electrodes is applied to a clutch as a torque transfer device. The ERG clutch shows excellent performances in static and dynamic characteristics of torque transfer.
