  • This paper presents a formulation of continuum theory for nematic liquid crystals based upon the balance laws for linear and angular momentum, that derives directly expressions for stress and couple stress in these transversely isotropic liquids. This approach therefore avoids the introduction of generalised forces or torques associated with the director describing the axis of transverse isotropy.
