This paper investigates the quasi-static rheological properties of lithium-based magnetorheological (MR) grease under large deformation. Three types of lithium-based MR grease comprising different mass ratios of carbonyl iron (CI) particles and lithium-based grease were prepared. The dependence of the magneto-induced stress-strain curves for MR grease on CI particles content, shear rate, and shear deformation under quasi-static monotonic shear conditions were tested and discussed. The results demonstrate that the shear rate dependence of the maximum yield stress is significantly weakened by the magnetic field, and this weakening is further enhanced as the CI particles content of MR grease increases. In addition, to evaluate and characterize the behavior of the cyclic shear-stress curves of MR grease under quasi-static condition, cyclic shear tests under different controlled conditions, i.e., CI particles content, shear rate, shear strain amplitude, and magnetic field strength, were conduct and analyzed. The magneto-induced shear stress of MR grease with higher CI particles content shows a sharp decrease during the transition from loading to unloading. Moreover, the experiment results also show that the damping characteristics of MR grease are highly correlated with CI particles content, shear strain, and magnetic field strength.
