Moreover, the change in viscosity is continuous and reversible, i.e., after removing the magnetic field the MR fluid can revert to a free-flowing liquid [7], Classical MR fluids are non-colloidal suspensions of magnetizable particles, having a size of the order of a few microns, in liquids of low permeability.
Their method uses nanomagnets, which are developed by attaching magnetizable atoms on to a silica surface.
A magnetorheological fluid (MRF) is a smart soft material with a dramatic rheological magnetic field-response, which increases the apparent viscosity of the MRF suspension [1], proportional to the strength of the magnetic field [2] due to the high concentration of magnetizable micro size particles [3, 4], typically spherical [5], and suspended in a nonmagnetic carrier [6].
