Some Experimental Study
Experimental studies on nematic LCPs in steady shear yield remarkable hydrodynamic orientational phenomena that remain poorly understood. We refer to the final chapter of Larson's Book [Larson (1999)] and recent review articles [cf. Kroger (2004), Rey and Denn (2002), Tan and Berry (2003)]. In particular, one of the most famous classical experiments is Larson-Mead Roll-Cell experiment [Larson (1993)].
