This study aims to investigate the influence of temperature on the linear and nonlinear rheological behavior of a MR fluid, MRF 132DG, using a rotational rheometer. The experiments were designed to obtain properties of the fluid under oscillatory shear strain in the amplitude and frequency sweep modes, while maintaining different constant temperatures (−5, 0, 20 and 50 °C). The data were used to evaluate the storage and loss moduli under different levels of magnetic flux density considering the linear as well as nonlinear viscoelastic regions. The critical strain amplitudes were further obtained. Results showed enhanced linear viscoelastic region with increasing magnetic field density. Moreover, the effects of temperature and magnetic field on the frequency dependency of the fluid properties are illustrated for small and large amplitudes of shear strains.
