Abstract: The present work reports the influence of different types of surface area, hydrophobic, and hydrophilic fumed silica mixed in silicone oil as a thixotropic additive on carbonyl particles based magnetorheological fluids (MRFs) were prepared. Scanning electron microscopy analysis confirms the fumed silica particles attached to the surfaces of CIPs. The vibrating sample magnetometer result shows the MRF4 and 5 have a better magnetic saturation value of 30.12 emu/gm and 40.12 emu/gm, respectively. The experimental rheological flow curve behaviours are investigated using the magnetorheometer. The Herschel–Bulkley rheological model is found to be in good agreement with the experimental curves and suggested shear thinning property is observed. The results showed that the hydrophilic silica with larger surface area type presented (i.e.MRF 4 and 5) better magnetorheological fluid characteristics in terms of shear stress, with a high value of dynamic yield stress, and have much-improved sedimentation ratio up to seven days. © 2021 Elsevier B.V.
