A computational investigation using the method of molecular dynamics was undertaken to characterize the state of magnetic particle dispersions. The simulations revealed that the microstructure of spherical particulate dispersions consists of chainlike clusters resulting from magnetic dipole alignment. Acicular particles formed clusters such as dimers, chains, and rings. The effect of fluid viscosity on the dispersion quality and the response of the magnetic dispersions to an external DC magnetic field are also reported.
