Effect of Molecular Shape on Polymeric Liquid Crystal

Abstract:

Article Preview

The effect of molecular shape on molecular configuration of liquid crystalline polymers under shear flows is numerically analyzed using the extended Doi theory. We can find that the molecular shape strongly affects on the transition among flow-orientation modes. The change in sign of the first normal stress difference is to speed up by the increasing .
