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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
