Abstract

This paper presents fabrication and characterizing of a new functional material, magnetorheological shear thickening fluid (MRSTF), by mixing micron-sized magnetizable particles with nano-sized silica particle based shear thickening fluid. Dynamic properties of the MRSTF were characterized by using a parallel-plate rheometer. The effects of steady-state shear rate and magnetic field on MRSTF rheological properties were addressed. The suspension shows an abrupt increase in complex viscosity beyond a critical dynamic shear rate and a magnetic field controllable characteristic, as well as reversible.
