Essentially, magnetofluid or magnetic liquid is a kind of magnetorheological fluids (MRF), only its yield stress is lower than conventional magneto rheological fluid [5].
This paper generalizes previous analytic treatments and shows that the governing magnetofluid equations are equivalent to a nonlinear second-order partial differential equation for a single scalar function of position.
