Featured Article: A review of challenges and solutions in the preparation and use of magnetorheological fluids

New Content Item

Magnetorheological fluids are a magneto-responsive, physically adaptable type of fluid that can alter their physical properties, such as shear strength, in response to their applied magnetic field.

Magnetorheological fluids may be of great use when they are applied as active or semi-active controls in engineering systems; however, challenges with their production and longevity in systems impacts the attractiveness of their implementation.

The authors have demonstrated improvements in the reduction of major challenges in magnetorheological fluid systems such as sedimentation and other setbacks. A list of additives for addressing specific challenges has also been summarized in this paper.

COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
