The first work on the rheology of anisometric particle suspensions (Jeffery, 1922) concerns ellipsoids.
The presence of highly oriented anisometric particles combined with the orientation of either the amorphous or crystalline phase imposes considerable undesirable anisotropy in in-plane shrinkages, which, in many cases, can lead to warpage and part deflection.
Considering the previous findings [5], [29], the stress overshoot could be attributed to network structure break down and the transient hydrodynamic stress induced by rotational motion and alignment of anisometric particles.
The shear stress overshoot and the scaling of stress with strain have also been reported for suspensions with anisometric particles and polymer liquid crystals (29), (30).
