This paper derives governing equations of the interaction of finite samples of smectic-A liquid crystals with an electrostatic field. Our model takes into account effects of the electric field on the layers distortion and vice-versa. The governing equations are obtained by the principle of virtual work.

Abstract

This paper derives governing equations of the interaction of finite samples of smectic-A liquid crystals with an electrostatic field. Our model takes into account effects of the electric field on the layers distortion and vice-versa. The governing equations are obtained by the principle of virtual work. They are adapted for a particular problem in order to analyze the phase transition of Helfrich­Hurault type induced by an electrostatic field on a finite sample of smectic.
