Abstract: Dipole-dipole interaction plays a major role in governing the pattern formation phenomena in a ferrofluid. Usually this interaction varies as the concentration is changed. A theoretical analysis on the effect of dipole-dipole interaction on a ferrofluid configuration by varying the size distribution of the particles is being presented here. Two types of distributions viz., log normal and flat top are chosen for the study. The simulations were carried out using a simple model incorporated in the Monte Carlo simulation technique. Results of the simulations are compared with those experimentally observed.
