The objective of this handbook is to provide a working guide to magnetic fluids. In the handbook, the concepts and basic principles have been explained in a simple manner, but the significance fully described; and sufficient examples are presented in regard to the use of the theory in practical situations. The liquid and magnetic phenomena, the core of magnetic fluid technology, are described in an easy-to-understand format. The fundamental characteristics of magnetic fluids along with measurement techniques are discussed. The design and operational principles of magnetic fluid devices are explained in detail with a view towards assisting the user with an in-depth understanding of the technology. The handbook is user-friendly. Magnetic fluids and related topics are presented in such a manner that the engineer quickly learns about this field and becomes efficient in the use of the technology. Students and academics should also find the book to be valuable because of its basic nature and broad subject matter.
