Magnetic actuation of ferrofluids with dynamic magnetic fields is one of the most promising research areas with its wide and different potential application areas such as biomedical and micropumping applications. Ferrofluid has the potential of opening up new possibilities. To have more understanding about various fields of engineering, more research should be conducted by considering both the experimental and modeling aspects. The most important parameters determining the flow property, flow rates and overall system efficiency are the quality and the topology of magnetic fields used in these systems. Therefore, the methods of dynamic magnetic field generation constitute a central problem to obtain desired performance. This study includes modeling and simulation of ferrofluid actuation with dynamic magnetic fields by using the COMSOL software and reports that ferrofluid actuation can be successfully used and the simulation results agree well with the experimental results.
