Electro-rheological(ER) fluids are suspensions in which rheological properties show an abrupt change with variation of electric fields. We modeled the parallel-plates relating to ER-Valve system and yielded shear stress according to the strength of electric field. The purpose of the present study is to examine the flow characteristics of ER fluids according to the strength of electric field between parallel-plates. Then the steady relationship between pressure drop and flow rate of the ER fluids between parallel-plates under application of an electric fields was measured. The pressure drop and flow rates of ER fluids under the application of electric fields for steady flow were measured. For the experiment, we used the ER fluids, 35w% zeolite having hydrous particles and differential pressure gauge. This test reviewed experiment for the special changes of ER fluids in the steady flow condition.
