Paper Title:
Simulation of Nematic Liquid Crystalline Polymer for Out-of-Plane Case
  Abstract

The effect of magnetic fields on the molecular configuration of liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) under simple shear flows is numerically simulated using the Doi theory when the initial state of the director is out-of-plane. A method of effectively enhance the order parameter is discussed in this paper. The simulation results show that the degree of molecular alignment can be greatly increased along the direction of the magnetic field. It is an efficient way to improve the performance of LCP materials.
