This paper reports the experimental studies on a magneto-rheological (MR) fluid under AC magnetic fields. Magnetic clusters in the MR fluid are formed along the magnetic fields. The ultrasonic propagation velocity changes owing to the presence of clustering structures in the MR fluid. We investigated clustering structures by measuring this change in the ultrasonic propagation velocity. The results indicate that magnetic clusters in the MR fluid depend on the elapsed time, intensity, frequency, and angle of the AC magnetic fields.
