The paper presents the development of mathematical model of oscillating system by taking into account electrorheological (ER) characteristics. Characteristics of the ER shock-absorber (dependences of force on value of control electric signal considering shock-absorber geometry, rod displacement, rheological properties of ER fluid) are calculated. Comparison of simulation results of shock-absorber characteristics with experimental findings is performed. Analysis of calculated relations of amplitudes of output and input signals depending on value of a control electric signal is carried out
