In this paper the splashing phenomena of magnetic fluid drops on a flat paper surface under applied magnetic fluids was studied experimentally. The drops of magnetic fluid fell on a piece of paper that was bonded to the hard rubber mat. The impact velocity of the drop was varied by the change of the height from which it fell. A permanent magnet and an electromagnet were used to magnetize the magnetic drop. The impact process was observed using a three dimensional motion analysis system. Effects of a magnetic field on the splashing phenomena of a magnetic fluid drop were revealed. It was also found that the number of surface spikes depends on the magnetic field strength and the impact velocity of a drop under a vertical magnetic field to the target plane.
