Nowadays magneto-rheological brakes has been introduce to overcome the drawback of conventional braking such as bulky, leakage and late build up pressure. Magnetic field is a main parameter need to be maximized in order to increase the efficiency of the brake. In MRF brake system the magnetic field directly affected by coil casing shapes. This paper focused on the study of the effect of coil casing shapes to the magnetic field distribution in MR brake. Finite Element Method will be used to analyze the magnetic field distribution produced by the coil. Five coils shape that different angle from 50° to 90° used in this study. As the result magnetic field was change quadratically by increasing the angle size. The best angle is between 60° to 70°. The peak value is at 70°. If more than that the magnetic field will drop. The significant of this study is to get the most efficient angle for the electromagnet casing for the MR brakes.
