Study on Microstructure and Mechanical Behavior of Magnetorheological Fluids with Mixed Particles
The microstructure and mechanical properties of magnetorheological (MR) fluids with mixed particles of different size are investigated. The interaction between particles of different radius is obtained and the model for motion of particles is proposed. Under an external magnetic field, the microstructure and yield shear stress of MR fluids with mixed particles of different sizes are simulated. It shows that particle size ratio in bidisperse suspensions can influence the performance of MR fluids.
