In the present study, we sysnthesize two types of MR fluids with different particle shapes and sizes. The magnetic functions are evaluated circulatingly by the analysis of cluster formation, rheological properties in the applied magnetic field and damping characteristics in the MR damper, comparing with those of commercial MR fluids. Final objective is to provide the fundamental data for the development of newly advanced MR fluids. The main topics consist of geographycal cluster formation depending on particle shapes and sizes, relating to the apparent viscosity and yield stress with magnetic flux density and further equivalent damping coefficient of two newly sysnthesized MR fluids comparing with those of LORD MR fluid.
