Elasticity Properties and Kernel Singularities of Liquid Crystal Polymers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


We examine the stability of flows of liquid crystal polymer materials under shearing perturbations. We apply the Laplace transform method to study the well-posedness of the resulting initial-boundary value problem and interpret the singularities of the transformed fields in terms of the elasticity properties of the material.
