This is the extension of our previous work (Submission No.2) on the coupled Lattice Boltzmann method and discrete element method to model magnetorheological fluid (MR fluid), which is a type of smart fluid composed of micrometer/nano-sized magnetizable particles suspended in a carrier fluid. The rheological properties of an MR fluid can be greatly altered upon application of an external magnetic field, with many applications in a wide range of industrial sectors. The work provides a general computational framework for further investigation of smart fluids including electro-rheological (ER) fluids.
