In this paper, we analyze the characteristic test results of an MR damper for a cruise bus, and we model the nonlinear hysteretic characteristics of the damper using arctangent and polynomial functions. We establish an experimental model of the MR damper according to the input current, and we set the model parameters using the MATLAB Optimization Toolbox. The model is verified via a computer simulation of a full-car model.
