Stochastic uncertainty theory is used to develop a new Bingham model of magnetorheological dampers superior to the existing model. Some input variables are defined as stochastic variables by the stochastic factor method, and the stochastic Bingham model is developed by the algebraic synthesis method. Curves of the damping force obtained by the stochastic Bingham model and the Bingham model in the literature are compared with experimental results, revealing that the curves obtained by the stochastic Bingham model are much closer to the experimental curves. Therefore, we confirm that the stochastic Bingham model is superior to the model from the literature.
