    We use a continuum model to investigate the isochoric axial contraction and expansion of a right circular cylindrical specimen composed of a nematic elastomer that is cross-linked in a uniaxial state and then annealed. ...

  • Fried, Eliot; Sellers, Shaun (American Institute of Physics, 2006)
    In a nematic elastomer the deformation of the polymer network chains is coupled to the orientational order of the mesogenic groups. Statistical arguments have derived the so-called neoclassical free energy that models this ...
