Steady shear response of a magnetorheological fluid (MRF) system containing porous mono-disperse magnetite (Fe3O4) spheres synthesized by solvothermal method is demonstrated. In applied magnetic field the interaction between the spherical particles leads to form strong columnar structures enhancing the yield strength and viscosity of the MRFs. The yield strengths of the MRFs also scale up with the concentration of magnetic particles in the fluid. Considering magnetic dipolar interaction between the particles the magneto-mechanical response of the MRFs is explained. Unlike metallic iron particles, the low-density corrosion resistant soft-ferrimagnetic Fe3O4 spherical particles make our studied MRF system efficient and reliable for shock-mitigation/vibration-isolation applications.
