Abstract: 606, J a p a n Steady flow behavior of bulk liquid crystals and polymeric liquid crystals are summarized into a three region flow curve. Changes in the internal structure during deformation and flow were investigated by rheo-optical methods. Two different optical geometries were used. In one method, a light beam passed through perpendicular to the shear plate, and in the other method a light beam passed perpendicular to the edge of the lamina flow. The results indicate that the details of the internal texture…
