In this study, anisotropic magnetorheological elastomers with 0% and 15% weight fractions of silicone oil were fabricated under a magnetic field that was rotated with a 45° angle so that the iron particle alignment inside the magnetorheological elastomer was 45° to the direction of flat magnetorheological elastomer. Scanning electron microscopic images confirmed the aligned structure of iron particles and showed that the sample with 15% silicone oil contribution resulted in a less volume fraction of iron particles. The magnetorheological elastomers were then tested in an oscillatory pure shear mode at different shear strain amplitudes under different magnetic flux densities to measure their dynamic viscoelastic properties. The testing results showed that the magnetorheological elastomer with 15% silicone oil had lower zero-field storage and loss moduli and also had higher maximum magnetorheological effect than the magnetorheological elastomer with 0% silicone oil. Because of the 45° iron particle alignment, the storage modulus of the magnetorheological elastomers had a higher value in a particular direction than its contrary direction. These unique properties made the magnetorheological elastomers with 45° iron particle alignment to be potentially used in industry where extra support is needed in a particular direction.
