Abstract

There has been a growing interest in the on-line detection of viscosity of magnetorheological fluids since it is a critical parameter that is sensitive to material property changes caused by chemical reactions, sedimentation process and magnetic field. Online monitoring of viscosity and density offers a powerful means for controlling the quality of magneto-rheological fluids and processes involving fluid environment.
