Demetriades, Sterge T. (1958) The effect of electrostatic fields on the orientation of collodial particles immersed in shear flow. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-09232004-093439
The orientation distribution function for colloidal particles immersed in Couette flow with an electric field parallel to the velocity gradient is derived in this study. A description of a modified and improved version of streaming birefringence apparatus built to test this theory and to conduct other studies in streaming birefringence is also included.
