• Typical dampers and energy harvesters based on characteristics of ferrofluids

    14 days ago - By Springer

    Abstract
    Ferrofluids are a type of nanometer-scale functional material with fluidity and superparamagnetism. They are composed of ferromagnetic particles, surfactants, and base liquids. The main characteristics of ferrofluids include magnetization, the magnetoviscous effect, and levitation characteristics. There are many mature commercial ferrofluid damping applications based on these characteristics that are widely used in numerous fields. Furthermore, some ferrofluid damping studies such as those related to vibration energy harvesters and biomedical devices are still in the laboratory...
