The magnetorheological fluid is a functional material that is changing its rheological properties and finally solidifies in a magnetic field. The dynamic behaviour, tested with the use of the Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar is an important issue for description of this material, which is commonly used in different kinds of shock absorbers. This note presents a new idea how to modify the known SHPB set up in order to investigate dynamic properties of magnetorheological materials.
