This study is an investigation on the effect of a chamfered orifice inlet on magnetorheological (MR) fluid subjected to shock loading. Three different orifices (without chamfer, chamfered at 60°, and chamfered at 120° on the inlet area) are used. MR fluid is subjected to shock loading, and a magnetic field is generated on the orifice area. Experiments are conducted by measuring piston displacement and damping force. Piston velocity is calculated from the piston displacement data. The results indicate that a chamfered orifice inlet affects the piston stroke, piston velocity, and damping force. The characteristics of piston velocity between the orifice without chamfer and the chamfered orifices are different. The post-peak decrease in piston velocity in the chamfered orifices is more refined than that in the orifice without chamfer. However, the chamfered shape in the orifice inlet reduces the shock loading performance of MR fluid.
