mag·net·ic field gra·di·ent

in magnetic resonance imaging, a magnetic field that varies with location, superimposed on the uniform field of the magnet, to alter the resonant frequency of nuclei and allow calculation of their spatial position.

From the earlier equation for magnetization, the magnetic attractive force acting on a particle is the product of the particle magnetization and the magnetic field gradient and can be expressed as:
In simple terms, the magnetic field intensity holds the particle while the magnetic field gradient moves the particle.
This effect is provided in contrast to traditional methods of polishing both by an optimal ratio of velocities of the workpiece-tool movement and the velocity of the MRPF jet flow, by the design of the magnetic system, which creates a magnetic field gradient, and compositional features of MRPF having the desired plastic characteristics and required complex filler particle distribution in the treatment zone.
Elaborating on the procedure of the research, he said, "Magnetic dipoles found in magnetic nanofluid are influenced by magnetic field gradient in such a way that if the magnetic field gradient positions in the same direction with natural convection of nanofluid, heat transfer in nanofluid will be improved, and vice-versa.
