Objectives: In this study the methodology of preparation of Magneto Rheological (MR) Fluids is discussed. A comparison of different MR Fluid samples with different concentration of Fe particles and silicon oil is presented. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: Magneto Rheological(MR) Fluids when suspended to magnetic field change their physical properties. These physical properties can be enhanced by modifying composition of MR Fluid. In this study, the effect of iron (Fe) particle concentration and different additives in Magneto Rheological (MR) Fluids are discussed. In experiment silicon oil, iron particles and additive are used to make MR Fluid. Findings: Sedimentation analysis of different samples of MR Fluid was done. It can be concluded that different additives enhance the physical properties of MR Fluid and change in Fe particle concentration effect stability of MR Fluid. Application/Improvements: MR Fluids can be used for mechanical as well as biomedical purposes.
Keywords: Additives, Magneto Rheological (MR), Sedimentation
