Abstract

In order to study the rheological characteristics of magnetorheological fluids, a simulation approach through integration of Monte Carlo method and GPU accelerated technology was proposed and the three-dimensional micro-structure of magnetic particles in different strength magnetic fields were simulated. The Monte Carlo method to magnetic particles of magnetorheological fluids and its key steps such as particle modeling, magnetic energy equations calculating and system state updating were elaborated. Moreover, GPU accelerated technology was applied to the simulation of magnetorheological fluids to reduce computational time and a flowchart for the proposed approach was designed. Finally, a physics experiment was carried out and the three-dimensional simulation examples were provided. The comparison results indicated that proposed approach was feasible, efficient and outperforming others.
