Characteristics of a tuned magnetic fluid damper are examined. The optimal depth of a magnetic fluid in a cylindrical container is calculated using a linear analysis of a magnetic fluid sloshing. In order to avoid swirling in lower depth fluids, several experiments using greater fluid depths are carried out and a good damping range is obtained.
