The paper presents a model of coupled electromagnetic, hydrodynamic, thermodynamic and mechanical motion phenomena in magnetorheological fluid devices. The numerical implementation of this model is based on the finite element method and a step-by-step algorithm. In order to include non-linearity, the Newton-Raphson procedure has been adapted. The elaborated method has been successfully used to the analysis of the coupled phenomena in a prototype of magnetorheological fluid brake. The results of the analysis and measurements are presented.
