The steady-state magneto-mechanical response of a magnetorheological fluid (MRF), prepared by dispersing 40 wt % of magnetically soft, light-weight coral-network-shaped yttrium iron garnet (YIG; Y3Fe5O12) powder in silicone oil (140 cSt) is studied as a function of shear rate, under different applied magnetic fields (B). The results show that the yield strength (tau(Y)) and viscosity (eta) of the MRF increase with B, and are strongly influenced by the physical parameters of the particles such as morphology and saturation magnetization. The low density of the YIG-particles, leading to higher volume fraction for equal mass loading, results in a higher viscosity in the absence of a magnetic field, in comparison to that of conventional metallic Fe-particle-based MRFs. Due to this, there is a relatively smaller increase in tau(Y) and eta when the magnetic field is switched on. The YIG-particles-based MRF has the advantages of high chemical stability, thermo-oxidative resistance and low-cost.
