magnetorheological fluid

[mag‚ned·ō‚rē·ə‚läj·ə·kəl ′flü·əd]
(materials)
A low-viscosity fluid containing a suspension of micrometer-size magnetic particles that increases in viscosity proportionally to the strength of an applied magnetic field; it is used as an adaptive shock absorber for actively controlled viscous damping.
