This paper presents the effects of magnetorheological (MR) fluid parameters, bidisperse ratio, carrier fluid viscosity and particle volume fraction, on its mechanical behaviour using statistical investigation. Silicone oil-based MR fluid samples were compressed using universal testing machine (UTM) in a vertical direction. A set of eight experiments was designed by Design Expert 7 software in which was conducted at two levels for each factor. Stress-strain curves that obtained from the compression test were then analysed by testXpert analyser software. The responses in terms of maximum stresses at 0.75 of strain were extracted from the curves. The result indicated that a combination of high bidisperse ratio and particle volume fraction, and a low carrier fluid viscosity could produce a high compressive stress. The findings are important to be considered in designing squeeze mode MR fluid actuators.
