This paper presents vibration control performances and stability evaluations of railway vehicle featuring controllable magnetorheological (MR) damper. The MR damper model is developed and then incorporated with the governing equations of motion of the railway vehicle which includes vehicle body, bogie and wheel-set. A cylindrical type of MR damper is devised and its damping force is evaluated by considering fluid viscosity and MR effect. Design parameters are determined to achieve desired damping force level applicable to real railway vehicle. Subsequently, computer simulation of vibration control and stability analysis is performed using Matlab Simulink.
