The focus of this study is to develop a new universal approach for the flow analysis of magneto-rheological (MR) fluids through channels. An experimental study is conducted to investigate the relationship between the pressure loss of a MR fluid as a function of the applied magnetic field strength, volumetric flow rate, and surface roughness without utilizing the assumption of shear yield stress. A relation for nondimensional friction factor is developed in terms of Mason number and dimensionless surface roughness. It is demonstrated that the pressure loss across the MR fluid flow channel is significantly affected by the magnetic field and the surface roughness.
