Rheology of Anisotropic Viscoelastic Fluids

  • V. S. Volkov
  • V. G. Kulichikhin


Rheological properties of liquid crystalline polymers are analyzed on the basis of simplest invariant theory of the anisotropic viscoelastic fluids. Oscillatory shear flow of anisotropic viscoelastic fluid with single nondeformable director were examined. The longitudinal and transversal (with respect to director) dynamic moduli are introduced.
