Shear flow dynamics in the Beris-Edwards model of nematic liquid crystals.

Abstract

We consider the Beris-Edwards model describing nematic liquid crystal dynamics and restrict it to a shear flow and spatially homogeneous situation. We analyse the dynamics focusing on the effect of the flow. We show that in the co-rotational case one has gradient dynamics, up to a periodic eigenframe rotation, while in the non-co-rotational case we identify… (More)
