Magnetorheological fluids: a review
Magnetorheological (MR) materials are a kind of smart materials whose mechanical properties can be altered in a controlled fashion by an external magnetic field. They traditionally include fluids, elastomers and foams. In this review paper we revisit the most outstanding advances on the rheological performance of MR fluids. Special emphasis is paid to the understanding of their yielding, flow and viscoelastic behaviour under shearing flows.
